Made this for dinner tonight – it was really good. Definitely a keeper. I made it because two of Charlie’s favorite food are brown rice and sausage. We had half of it left over – so it is good for two meals for the two of us. I don’t think the cheese added that much, it could easily be omitted and while I really liked the celery in it, I didn’t even notice the green pepper. I will probably leave that out next time.
1 pound bulk pork sausage (I used mild)
2 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup milk (I used half and half – had some I needed to use)
3/4 cup chopped celery (about 1 large stalk)
1/4 cup chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 oz. jar of sliced mushrooms, sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Brown and drain pork sausage.
Mix the sausage together with all other ingredients except the cheese in an ungreased 2 quart casserole dish.
Sprinkle the cheese on top.
Cook uncovered in oven 45 minutes at 350degrees until the center is bubbly.
Makes 4 generous servings
