Smothered Potatoes & Sausage in a Rice Cooker

Hey babes! Thought I’d share an easy and budget-friendly meal today! But, I have to let you in on a secret. I have NEVER cooked white rice on the stove. Ever. I’d be lost without my beloved rice cooker. It’s a blessing! And now, we can put stuff other than rice in the thing too?! Chile, sign me up!!

How easy was that? Feel free to add shrimp too if you’d like! I forgot to film the part where I added butter. My apologies. But, all of the details will be listed below.
