While Bread dressing is common for Thanksgiving, for a little variety and a traditional dish, try Wild Rice dressing instead. It takes a little time but is well worth the effort.

How to Make Wild Rice Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. WILD RICE PREPARATION:
  2. Bring water to a rolling boil in a 5 quart saucepan. Add olive oil and wild rice. Return to a rolling boil (about 10 minutes) and stir.
  3. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking until wild rice has "split".
  4. Drain all water from rice.
  5. DRESSING PREPARATION:
  6. In same 5-quart sauce pan, add , mushrooms, onion, celery, garlic, pepper, thyme, sage and rosemary. Sauteed until vegetables are tender.
  7. Remove saucepan from heat and add wild rice. Stir well and serve.
  8. NOTE:
  9. To make life a little less hectic on Thanksgiving day, I cook the wild rice the weekend before and store in a gallon size ziploc bag in the refrigerator.
  10. The day of Thanksgiving I sauteed the vegetables and seasoning and mix in the wild rice. I then place in a large casserole dish and put in the oven for 30 minutes at 350F.
  11. If there's any leftover, you can make Wild Rice & Turkey Soup.
