Beans and rice
South Louisiana comfort food, beans and rice. But not exactly traditional. The beans are lima beans from a can (Trappeys at least) and the sausage is a veal/pork bratwurst. The German sausage has a link to south LA. That is all the German folk that settled here in the 18th and 19th century and were the basis of all the good sausages we have now. The lima beans were treated to several shakes of a locally blended seasoning mix then slow cooked until all the liquid had evaporated they had turned creamy. Good enough for a put together meal. I enjoyed it.
