Hamburger Rice CasseroleOne of the great things about blogging is the people that I “meet”. Recently a reader was in touch with some questions about an older recipe. In writing back and forth I asked her what she would like me to make next. She gave me a few specifics about what she’d like and what her husband’s tastes for food were and I decided that this recipe might hit the spot. I haven’t made it in years but it is so easy and delicious I knew I had to share it.
So Julaine, this one’s for you and I hope your family likes it as much as mine does…and as always, thanks for reading!!
Hamburger Rice Casserole
1 pound hamburger with 1/2 cup onions-diced and browned
3/4 cup Minute Rice-I like the brown rice variety
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon soy sauce
3/4 cup grated cheese-any flavor is good
1- 8 ounce can water chestnuts-diced
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup frozen vegetables-in my house it has to be corn
1 cup Asian crunchy noodles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients but the noodles. Put into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake for 1 hour. Add the noodles to the top for the last 10 minutes.
Some alternatives are: Worcestershire instead of soy sauce. Add 1 package Chorizo for some added kick and of course any seasoning that you like would make it your own.
While you're at it, make a double batch and throw half in the freezer for another time!
