Rice Stuffing

Want a different variety of stuffing?  This is very different, yet a good variation.  It has a great flavor and is very easy to make.  If you don’t want to cook it in the turkey, you don’t need to.  You can just bake it in a dish for 35-40 minutes.  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

3 3/4 cup water

3 boxes of Uncle Ben Long Grain Wild Rice Butter & Herb

1/2 cup butter divided

1/2  cup Craisins

1 large apple, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup sliced almondstoasted (toast the almonds 10-12 minutes at 325, stirring occasionally)

Directions:

1)  In a large saucepan combine rice, season packets, 3 tablespoons of butter and cranberries and bring to a boil.

2)  Cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.

3)  Stir in the apple and almonds and set aside.

4)  Preheat oven to 325.

5)  Take the turkey and fill the cavity with the rice stuffing

6)  If there is any left over, place it in a separate pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.

7)  Follow instructions for baking the turkey.

This is very good!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Green Beans With Almonds and Bacon

My last post is the main dish (Oriental Noodle Toss with Black Beans) we will have for dinner this evening.  This is the vegetable we will have with it.  It is very easy and very good tasting!  My picky girls even enjoy it!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 lb green beans
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices bacon, cooked
1/4 tsp garlic powder
to taste salt
Notes / Directions
1 pound green beans
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices of cooked bacon
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt to taste1 Snap off the tough ends and remove strings from green beans. Cut green beans in half.
2 In a large saucepan place green beans in 1″ of boiling water and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
3 Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add bacon, almonds, garlic powder, and salt and stir.
4 Pour sauce over green beans. Toss and serve.
5 Time Saving Tip: To save time use precooked bacon. Microwave precooked bacon for 30-60 seconds to make it extra crisp.
6 Tip: To make the green beans more festive for the holidays, add 1/4 cup of dried cranberries.
Happy Monday!
