The Happy Housewife knows your family is on a budget....so why spend a lot on over-processed, packaged foods, when good, simple, and quick will do? This dish goes great with simple meals like burgers from the grill, or fancier meals like roasted chicken. This also travels well, so it's great for pot-luck dinners. Try this one with your family today!
1 cup regular rice (the cheap by-the-bag stuff, not Minute Rice)
1 regular can chicken broth (or veggie broth)
1 small can of sliced mushrooms and their juice
About ½ Stick butter or margarine, sliced and dropped in by the chunk, use as much or little as you like
Put all the ingredients into a loaf pan or lidded casserole, cover with lid or aluminum foil. Bake at 300-350 for about an hour. Keep the lid on the whole time, don’t peek!
Picky kids? Leave out the shrooms, but add in more water, about 1/3 of the broth can will do the trick.
