Rice Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Luby Luby Luby

This is one of my favorite dishes from my childhood. My grandmother would make this dish often and as a teenager I loved it. Although it is traditionally served as a side dish for any type of meat I usually eat it all by itself as a meal. I just season it with black pepper and red pepper and find that it doesn't need any additional salt. The soups are salty and I use salted butter so no need to add more. To me this is the epitome of comfort food.

Miss Luby, this rice is DEE-LICIOUS! I love the kick it gets from the cayenne. It makes ALOT, which is a good thing because you cannot stop eating it. I couldn't put my finger on right away of what it reminded me of, but now I know. The flavor is very similiar to Uncle Bens long grain and wild rice. This is a VERY soft rice....so people liking a firmer rice may what to experiment cutting back on the broth some, and it absolutely does NOT need any additional salt.
