The Grape Nuts flavor with the rice just didn't really work for us. They kept their crunch more than I thought they would and had a bit of an off-taste with the rice. Definitely didn't taste like sausage to us. I'm very sorry I couldn't leave a more positive review.

This was really good. I didn't add as much margarine but the lack of it didn't make a difference in the texture or the taste. Even my fil who hates mushrooms loved it. The "secret" ingredient is tasty, and not crunchy. What a great quick, different pilaf. Thanks Missjuliee for another good healthy addition for my cookbook.
