Start by cooking the rice according to the package instructions.
In a large skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium-high heat until it is cooked through and lightly browned.
Add in the paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic, and onion, and cook for another minute or two until the vegetables are softened.
Add in the cooked rice and stir to combine everything together. Cook for 2-3 minutes until all of the flavors have blended together.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
