This buttery, beefy, out-of-this-world yummy baked rice made with beef consommé and mushrooms is known by many in the South as “Church Lady rice!” Anyone over 50 who grew up attending church potlucks knows this dish very well. I truly believe that most sweet church ladies used canned mushrooms (and it was fabulous, trust me!), but these days I use a carton of fresh mushrooms, which I sauté in butter and then add to the recipe.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

An easy-to-make rice side dish for any meal or even to bring to a potluck. The mixture of French onion soup and consomme makes for a rich and savory base that soaks into the rice. We used fresh mushrooms and they add another layer of texture to this dish. Canned mushrooms can be used too, but we liked the freshness of fresh mushrooms. Full of flavor, this baked rice dish is wonderful.

  • Dish with butter in an oven preheating.
    Place in oven; turn temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Removing dish when butter is melted.
    Remove dish when butter is melted.
  • Rice, soups, and mushrooms added to melted butter.
    Add rice, soups, and mushrooms to the dish atop melted butter.
  • Pressing rice into the liquid.
    Stir loosely with fork or spoon so that all rice is dispersed in liquid.
  • Baking the rice casserole.
    Place dish in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until top is golden.

    The rice can be made early in the day (even the day before) and reheated just before serving. It reheats beautifully in the microwave or in a very low oven (250 F to 300 F) for 15 minutes or until heated through.
