READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Wildflour

This recipe is SO SIMPLE! But oh so good!!!!!!! A great way to make a quick side dish without a lot of fuss, but great flavor! My own concoction, though I think it's Austrian...??? I think I saw Emeril?? make it years ago, but I didn't write it down. So this is my own version. My picky hubby even likes it! :) Haha! And he swears he hates Minute Rice!

The first bite was kind of weird. I could taste the mayo. But after it was getting better less mayo taste. But DH really didn't like this. Because of the mayo. I cooked it in the microwave. Thanks Wildflour. Made for Beverage tag.
