Low country casserole


This was another one I received as a new mom meal. I finally got the recipe and was able to make it myself. Mark REALLY liked this one. I think it is because of the sausage.

Low Country Casserole
1 lb sausage - cooked and drained
1 package Uncle Ben's rice
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 onion chopped
1 can mushrooms
1 cup shredded chedder cheese

Combine first 5 ingredients and top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. The person I got this from notes that sometimes she adds some cooked chicken.


My notes: I didn't have uncle Ben's rice, so I added about 2 cups brown rice from the freezer and 1 cup wild rice then 2T of greek seasoning. I also didn't have any mushrooms so I added 1 can of undrained fire roasted tomatoes. I would do that again with the mushrooms. That blue dish was enough for 1 meal for Mark, James and I. To freeze it again, I would add some chicken like it was mentioned and more rice to get a little more for both meals.

Wow, you did some major subbing ... I can't believe that worked with the rice. Bravo, for being creative! I thought Uncle Ben's was partially cooked rice and cooked differently from natural rice. I do like the idea of the tomatoes addition. Should freeze well, I would think.
