Sausage & Rice Casserole
Ingredients for Sausage & Rice Casserole are above, with the exception of some water. A very easy recipe with only 8 ingredients!
Start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees. Brown package of turkey sausage over medium heat then drain off excess fat. I used mild sausage, but if you like a little heat get that hot sausage!
Lightly grease a 13x9 casserole dish
Add in 1 cup uncooked rice. Be sure it goes on the bottom so it has the opportunity to cook all the way through.
Add in 10.5 oz can of Cream of Chicken soup
Then a 10.5oz can of Cream of Mushroom soup
Now take one of the soup cans and fill it with water and pour water into the casserole dish with the other ingredients.
Chop up 1 cup of celery.....and 1/2 cup of onion
Add in all the remaining ingredients, so celery, onion and turkey sausage.
And don't forget your seasoning!
Bake for 2 hours at 325 degrees and you get this lovely product below!
I'll admit when the casserole came out of the oven, I freaked a bit. I could see pieces of rice on top that were quite crispy. But when you scoop out a portion, you see all that tender rice under there! This recipe makes 8-10 servings, so thankfully this makes really great leftovers. ENJOY!
Church cookbooks are literally the bread and butter of the South. This cookbook, which has a photo of my Nana on it, is my all-time favorite! I grew up with my mom and Nana making lots of recipes from this cookbook. Not only did they make recipes from it, they also contributed quite a few recipes. This barbecue cups recipe came from the Heaven's Bounty cookbook. It goes a little like this:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Start by browning your ground turkey in a pan over medium heat.
Once you've browned your meat and drained off the excess grease. Measure out 1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce.
Add barbecue sauce and 1 tablespoon....
...make that 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of minced onion (not pictured)
Now mix all that goodness together!
It's time to pop open those flaky biscuits and mold them into your lightly greased muffin tin (So the recipe my mom uses says an ungreased muffin tin, but I'm too afraid to try that). Be sure your biscuits come over the edges of the cups.
Load up those biscuits with that delicious looking meat mixture
Top with grated cheese, if you think you've added enough, then just keep sprinkling. Throw those beauties in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits puff up. Once they come out of the oven, it's time to ENJOY!
