Army Rice

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Lennie

Taken from Out of This World CookBook II. I have never tried this! I don't know if it's meant to be a main course on a buffet or for a large family, or just a meaty side dish -- so I'll categorize it as both.

This was very easy and it had a great taste. I halved it here on 'Zaar, and here are the other things I did differently: used hot Italian sausage; added garlic and hot pepper flakes; and when adding the rice, I felt that 1 1/8 quarts of water and 1 cup of rice seemed disproportionate, so I added 2 cups of rice. When I took it out of the oven after 40 minutes, it was done and had the right texture, so we called it good and had it as a meaty side dish. Wonderful! And... yes it makes a ton of food, even if you halve it...
