Momma's Holiday Rice

This was my mom's recipe that she always fixed for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner. I never knew why she only fixed it at holidays, as it is soooo easy to make. My dad always said, "No one leaves until the rice is gone!"

This can be made ahead and cooked and then refrigerated or frozen.

I sometimes decrease the Uncle Ben's rice by about 1/2 to 3/4 cup and use that amount of wild & brown rice blend.

This recipe can easily be cut in half cooked in a 9x9 dish.

This will be a great served at a holiday meal. I loved the flavor of this rice... it reminded me of wild rice. The almonds add a nice crunch. This is easy and delicious! The Test Kitchen
