Flavorful Rice Dressing

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.


8 servings

My original dressing seems to satisfy people who prefer dressing made with bread and those who prefer a rice variety. It includes both, plus spinach and a hint of orange for unexpected surprises. Leftover dressing (if there is any!) reheats well. -Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin


  • 7 slices day-old bread, torn
  • 1 cup torn corn bread
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup firmly packed sliced fresh spinach
  • 1 cup cooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup cooked wild rice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large bowl, lightly toss bread and water. In a skillet, saute celery, onion and mushrooms in oil until tender, stirring constantly. Stir into bread mixture. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Place in a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
