DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the rice and tomato sauce together place in a microwave safe casserole.
  • Take the hamburger that is mixed with a little bacon drippings (this is ok because the hamburger was 90% lean).
  • Layer the meat in next.
  • Layer in the corn then layer the mushrooms.
  • Then the corn then the bacon for flavor and decoration.
  • Now the shredded cheese.
  • Microwave on high 5 minutes or so until heated through and the cheese is melted.
  • This sounds strange, so if you are a health nut remember that the hamburger was 90% lean and the bacon is for garnish so there is only a little (do not use bacon bits). Did you know you can also add chili beans as a layer if you want. The 1/2 envelope of onion soup might be used to add flavor to the tomato sauce if the sauce is a variety that is boring or bland. Use a little and taste to see if you want to add more or use none if not needed.
