Cheesy Rice Casserole
Here’s another dish Amish cooks stir up from ingredients in their pantries. This basic comfort food goes well with just about anything and feeds a crowd! You can use any sort of white/brown/wild rice you prefer.
1/2 cup butter or margarine, divided
½ cup chopped onion
8 cups cooked rice
1 cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cups shredded Cheddar or Velveeta cheese
2 cups crushed corn flakes
Preheat oven to 350º. Saute the onion in ¼ cup of the butter. Stir this into the rice with the sour cream, soup, and cheese, then spread the mixture in a sprayed 9” x 13” baking dish. Melt the remaining ¼ cup of butter and stir in the corn flakes, then spread this mixture on top of the rice. Bake for about 45 minutes, until bubbly and hot. Serves 15.
