"I fiddled around with this dish, trying to adjust it to my family's tastes," notes Jennifer Trost from West Linn, Oregon. "When my pickiest child cleaned her plate, I knew I'd found the right flavor combination."

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (7.2 ounces each) rice pilaf
  • 2 pounds bulk pork sausage
  • 6 celery ribs, chopped
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare rice mixes according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, celery and carrots over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sausage mixture, rice, soups, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. Transfer to two greased 11x7-in. baking dishes.
  3. Cover and bake 40-45 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casseroles up to 3 months. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°.
