Cheesy Sausage/ Rice Casserole

Cassie *


So, It was just my son and I for dinner tonight. One of those throw something together! My son is the least pickiest of my family, so I thought I would try something new on him. Well, his first bite, he said " you can make this again anytime mom! "..I was tickled!!

It is delicious! I just served it with some peas. Was quite filling.

How to Make Cheesy Sausage/ Rice Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish, set aside.
  2. Brown sausage, onion, garlic, mushrooms, seasonings together in about 1 tablespoon oil, and drain.
  3. Combine the rice with the sausage mixture. Add the pimentos.
  4. Add soups and shredded cheese; stir to mix thoroughly.

    Pour mixture into greased casserole dish.

    Bake 25-30 minutes or until casserole bubbles in the center.

    Remove from oven and sprinkle additional cheese on top, if desired...I didn't. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Roughly 40 minutes in all.
  5. I think you could substitute just about anything in this dish for the mushrooms; if not a just had an awesome flavor. Make sure you use a flavorful I think that is what made the dish wonderful!....Enjoy!
