I needed a side dish that would serve 30 people without any last minute fuss. My friend,Pat, gave me this, one of her favorite party recipes. The recipe serves 4 but is easily adjusted. Don't wait for a party to serve this dish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Saute onions in butter until golden.
  3. Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water.
  4. Combine onions (undrained), bouillon, rice, mushroom pieces, salt and pepper in a 1 1/2 qt baking dish.
  5. Bake uncovered 1 hour.

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it is such an EASY, great way to make rice. However, I have to note that the rice only took 30 minutes to cook -- not an hour. An hour sounded way to long to me, so I checked some other baked rice recipes and noticed they were baked 30 minutes. Sure enough, this rice was perfect at 30 minutes. I also used only 1 tablespoon of butter, though I doubt that affected the cooking time. My advice is to turn on your oven light and take a look after 30 minutes.

What a terrific way to do rice and keep a burner clear for those times when you just don't have any extra space. We ate it all up! --- I used the mushroom "juice" and home made chicken stock in lieu of the water and bullion then threw a couple minced cloves of garlic in with the onions for the last minute or two. I poured the stock into the pan with the onions to deglaze and get every last bit of the flavor out of the pan.

This was really good. I followed the recipe exactly using two chicken bouillon cubes. The only change I made was that I used fresh mushrooms instead of the canned that the recipe called for. It took about 40 minutes to cook. I will make this again for sure. Thanks...
