How to Make Cheesy Sausage/ Rice Casserole

Step-by-Step

  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 fan...it just had an awesome flavor. Make sure you use a flavorful sausage...as I think that is what made the dish wonderful!....Enjoy!
