Wild Rice and Mushroom Casserole
- Yield 4 servings
This rice casserole is loaded with tasty mushrooms and makes a delicious side dish.
- 1 cup wild rice
- 1 (10-ounce) can condensed consomme
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 pound mushrooms
- Wash rice carefully, pick over and remove chaff. Place in a broad shallow casserole and cover with can of consomme; let stand 3 hours. Then bake, covered, in 350F oven for about 45 minutes, adding a little water if rice becomes too dry.
- Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 pound small mushrooms which have been sauteed in a little butter. Lightly mix with a fork. Uncover rice at the last and let dry out a little; lower oven to 300F. No crust should form but all liquid should be absorbed. This is a delicious buffet supper dish.
