Introduction

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe a few years ago and no Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner is complete without it in our family gatherings now. My mother-in-law gave me this recipe a few years ago and no Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner is complete without it in our family gatherings now.

Ingredients

    2 C. Boiling Water
    1 C Uncooked Wild Rice
    1-10.5oz. Can Chicken Gumbo Soup
    1 Can Sliced mushrooms, undrained
    1/2 C Water
    1 Bay Leaf
    1 t. Salt
    1/4 t Celery Salt
    1/4 t Garlic Salt
    Paprika
    Black Pepper
    1/4 t Onion Salt
    3 T. Chopped Onions
    3 T. Olive Oil
    1 Lb. Lean Ground Beef

Directions

Pour boiling water over rice; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain; place in 3-qt. casserole. Add soup, mushrooms, water & seasonings. Mix gently; let stand a few minutes. Saute onion in oil until glossy; add to casserole. Add meat to oil remaining in pan; fry until brown & crumbly. Add to rice; cover. Bake @ 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

NOTE: Mixture may be refrigerated and baked for 2 hours when needed.

NOTE: I usually put in slow cooker and cook on high until it's done then reduce to low.

NOTE: This recipe can be easily changed to diet by using reduced sodium chicken gumbo soup, frying the onions with the beef and omitting the oil and some people might want to use ground turkey instead of beef. Any way you cook it, this casserole is the bomb.
