I've taken this tasty casserole to countless potlucks and church suppers. It conveniently bakes in the oven for 1 hour, so I can get other things done around the house.—Mrs. W.T. Kesler, Laurens, South Carolina


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Crumble beef into a large bowl. Stir in soup, onion, rice, water and soup mix; mix well. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
