• 1 bay leaf

• 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and devined

• 4 c. boiling water


Place ham, sausages and onions in 3-quart saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat until onions are soft. No need to add any oil as the meat will provide enough fat for cooking.

Add rice and stir well. Add green onions, paprika, parsley, thyme, garlic, green pepper, salt, bay leaf, shrimp and 4 cups boiling water. Bring to a boil. Let boil for 5 minutes. Lower heat. Cover pot tightly and let cook slowly for 35 minutes or until rice is tender. With fork, fluff rice up, mixing sausages well.
