For blogmas today, the prompt today was to share a favorite recipe for Christmas. This was a bit hard for me because there are so many wonderful recipes that we share around Christmas as a family. But I went with the one my grandma made. Even though, I’ve realized that it is pretty well known throughout the internet. I LOVED this recipe.
It is a french onion rice recipe, which is FAR from healthy… but it is soooo good!
1 cup of uncooked white rice (not instant)
1 can condensed french onion soup
1 can beef broth
1/2 cup butter, sliced
In this variation, you will be baking this (my grandma always used a saucepan and cooked it on a stove using minute rice). But for this one– let’s do the oven!
Preheat over to 425 degrees
Combine rice, soup and broth in a baking pan.
Cut butter into slices and place on top of the mixture.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove cover and bake an additional 30 minutes.
In my grandma’s version, you would use the minute (instant) rice and you would mix the rice with the broth and condensed french onion soup. Then you would add the butter slices and cook until the rice was soft.
Like, I said– this recipe isn’t healthy at ALL! But it is a wonderful dish for a family dinner because it goes pretty far and it isn’t complicated at all
What’s your favorite holiday dish?
