This was hard to name. I looked all over for a sausage with wild rice recipe that my friend had made me one day and couldn’t find one similar.
I ended up making a completely different recipe.
I found a few online, and kind of just “winged it”. There were so many different variations to this recipe. All of them had rave reviews. I just used what I had on hand in my pantry.
Wild Rice Sausage and mushroom casserole
2c wild rice mix
Pinch of salt
(Or make according to directions on container)
1lb mild sausage
1c sharp cheddar cheese
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1c chicken broth (I eyeballed this, and I’m not sure it’s needed. I used it because I had an open container in my fridge. I really think this could be skipped)
In a saucepan, I added olive oil, onions & celery. Once those are near done, add sausage. You could also add mushrooms. I didn’t have any.
Mix in cream of mushroom soup and broth. Add rice. Sprinkle pepper and parsley. Fold in cheese. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 min.
My kids really liked this. I don’t think it is visually very appealing, but the flavor was great! You can change this recipe to your liking. My kids ate everything on their plates and even got seconds! I would definitely make this again. We really don’t have any picky eaters in our family. My kids love their veggies!
Let me know if you try this recipe!
