I liked that rice stuff so much the other day that I made it again tonight. In doing so I discovered that I have made a huge omission to the recipe that I posted here.
There should be a can of Cream of Mushroom soup and about 1/2 cup of milk added to the mixture to hold the whole thing together. It's still tasty without it but it's pretty dry.
So if anyone out there has started cooking, STOP. Go to the store and get some mushroom soup and milk and dump it in before you bake this stuff. You'll be glad you did.
I will be updating the recipe forthwith. Thank you for your understanding. No hate mail from angry spouses, please.
