Cheesy Beef Sausage and Wild Rice Casserole
Monday we picked up some new beef cuts and I was so excited when I saw the ground sausage that I decided to cook up one of our family favorites, kids love it too, but this time using our beef sausage!
This was a meal that I was given by a friend when Eli was first born and I've been gifting to my friends ever since. It is very simple and with things I keep stocked in my pantry and my freezer!
1 box Long Grain and Wild Rice
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can Golden Mushroom soup (Do not substitute with Cream of Mushroom)
- Cook up the wild rice using instructions on the box
- While you cook your rice, brown the sausage, drain if necessary.
- Once rice is cooked, mix all your ingredients together - rice, sausage, cheese, and soup.
- Bake in oven at 350 for 30 minutes.
The best part about this recipe to me is that it is freezable. (The most magical word to a busy mom!). Once you've mixed your ingredients, pour into a freezer casserole dish, cover with foil, place in freezable zip lock. When you're ready to enjoy or perhaps you want to gift this to a friend - thaw and bake 350 for 30 minutes.
