Today we (in Minnesota) are having a bit of a cold snap. By that I mean it is supposed to get to a high of 61 degrees. Hells yeah. Wasn't it just last week that we were in the 90's? Yes, yes it was. Welcome to weird Minnesota.
With this cold snap the only thing I can think of is soup, bread, pasta and HOT DISH! Some of you out there might call it casserole but up here in Minnesota, anything with cram of whatever soup is hot dish baby! I found this recipe via Pinterest (weird) and I think it will become a regular on our rotation.
Turkey and Wild Rice Casserole
drizzle of canola or vegetable oil
1 Medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups cooked turkey or chicken, cubed
2 6 oz boxes wild rice mix (with the seasoning packets)
2 cans cream of chicken, celery, or mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
3/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, drizzle the oil and add the onions and celery. Let these cook for about 3 minutes. Add the turkey or chicken and rice. If you have enough room in the skillet add the seasoning packets, soup, sour cream, parmesan cheese and milk. If you don't have enough room just combine everything in a large bowl. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Add the mixture to the pan and put in the oven for about 40 minutes. At 40 minutes, take a fork and test the rice. If it is done take it out. If it still needs a little time pop it back in the oven for 5 minutes. If at 40 minutes it looks dry, add a splash of milk, stir and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
