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 on 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 very easy side dish will be a great served at a holiday meal. We loved the flavor of this rice. It reminded us of wild rice. Almonds add a nice crunch to each bite. This is simple and delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
