Today I am sharing with you one of our family's favorite recipes. This was a recipe I grew up with and I now make for my own family. It's a sausage and rice casserole. I can honestly say this is one that my kids ask me to make over and over. On a day like today when it is cold outside, this is the perfect comfort food to make.
It's super easy and has a great flavor! I like it with the hot sausage for extra spice, but the mild sausage also works just fine. It's your preference.
1 lb bulk sausage (I use Bob Evans zesty hot)
1/2 onion chopped
1 small celery stalk chopped
5 cups water
1 pkg of Lipton chicken noodle soup secrets (2 packets)
1 cup of uncooked rice (not minute rice)
1. Boil 5 cups of water and add both packets of Lipton chicken noodle soup, boil for 7 minutes
2. Saute chopped onion, bulk sausage, and celery until brown, drain
3. Combine both with 1 cup of uncooked rice in a 9×13 casserole dish
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr
Let me know what you think if you give it a try!
