Love this recipe! This is definitely my "go to" recipe for millet. I usually double or quadruple the recipe to make leftovers, and I reduce the amount of butter in half. A great way to cook millet is in a rice cooker- it comes out perfect every time!

Very good! I doubled the recipe and used equal amounts of chicken broth and water instead of just water. I eliminated the butter and sauted the millet in a small amount of EVOO. I also sauted 1/2 pound of mushrooms and a small chicken breast (cubed) and added it to the millet prior to putting in the casserole. It was served with steamed broccoli.We will be enjoying this again.

Fantastic! This was my first time making millet and I don't see myself bothering to look for another recipe. The whole family loved it. Thanks!
