This is a dish I’ve had made by my fiance’s mother for years (if you’ve been following, the Drunken Developer isn’t just my boyfriend anymore — he proposed! :D). It’s great and always pleases a crowd. And although I didn’t do a perfect job with my first try, overall the recipe is fairly straightforward. My mistake was not allowing it to cook long it enough and although it still tasted good, it was too soup-y, and it should really be a casserole. I did it for 45 minutes, but I really think it may need to go for closer to 60. We had this with a side of broccoli and green beans and a pork loin, and it made a great little dinner that was quite easy to throw together.
1 stick of butter
1 cup of rice (uncooked)
2 oz of water
1 can french onion soup
1 can beef consomme
1. Preheat oven to 350. Place a stick of butter in a casserole dish in the oven until it is fully melted.
2. Pour the rice into the melted butter and allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the rice and butter.
4. Cover and bake for 45 to 60 minutes (I think closer to 60 would be better).
5. Serve and enjoy!
