A few years ago back when I used to WORK for a living, I worked in a chemical plant in the engineering department. Every year our department would have a holiday lunch for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Man, the food was always amazing. What do you expect with a bunch of people from South Louisiana cooking?? I always collected recipes of the stuff I really liked and one of those was something my friend Rusty made. Mushroom Rice. For something so simple, it’s so tasty! It goes great with a variety of things, we like it with oriental food like chicken teriyaki, or like tonight we served it as a side to homemade egg rolls.
Rusty’s Mushroom Rice
1 small can mushroom stems & pieces, with juice
1 can beef broth
1 can French Onion soup
1/2 stick margarine
1 1/4 cup rice, uncooked
Preheat oven to 375.
Melt margarine. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and pour melted butter in. Add mushrooms, beef broth and onion soup. Mix well. Stir in rice. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour, stirring after 40 minutes.
