Credit for this dish goes to Ruth Ann Klassen of Aberdeen, Idaho who says this recipe came from her husband's grandmother. It's quick to make and very tasty. Hearty helpings of this specially seasoned rice will disappear in a hurry at your dinner table. Note: Cooking time does not include time to cook rice. An option is to use instant brown rice to reduce prep time.

Wish I could leave more than a five star rating for this. It is great and we enjoyed it a lot! I used regular brown rice that I cooked until the water was almost absorbed. Didnt cook until tender because I was worried about mushy rice after baking for almost an hour. Used celery seed instead of celery salt and garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Put my cast iron pot in the oven with the lid on and baked for 50 minutes. The rice was perfect and it smell so good. Topped with cheddar cheese and put it back in. This will be made again many times! Thank you DuChick for sharing this recipe with us. Made and reviewed for the Photo Tag Game.
