Heat oil and butter in Dutch oven or large saucepan set over medium heat; cook sliced sausage, onion, celery, red and green peppers, garlic and thyme for about 5 minutes or until sausage starts to brown and vegetables start to soften.
Stir in rice, paprika, pepper, salt and cayenne pepper; cook for about 2 minutes or until rice is well coated.
Stir in broth, tomatoes and bay leaves; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.
Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Remove bay leaves. Sprinkle with parsley; serve with lemons (if desired).
Tips: 1) For added flavour, substitute dry white wine or beer for 1/4 cup of the broth. 2) For extra-spicy jambalaya, add a few dashes of Louisiana-style hot sauce.
