DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash wild rice several times under cold water until water runs clear. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in skillet and then fry sausage over medium high heat, breaking up into as small pieces as possible. Do not overcook--cook just until all pink is gone. Remove sausage from skillet and set aside.
  • In same skillet saute onion, celery, carrot and bell pepper over medium high heat until just beginning to brown lightly. Toss frequently.
  • Add wild rice to skillet and continue to saute a while longer, tossing frequently to coat wild rice with oil but do not let it burn.
  • Add salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Add Cream of Celery soup to skillet and mix quickly, then add 2 soup cans of water and stir until well mixed.
  • When well mixed, add reserved sausage meat and mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil, immediately remove from stove and pour into a buttered casserole (at least 2 qts.) and cover with foil.
  • Place in oven and bake. After 30 minutes check and add a small amount of additional water if necessary, and stir well.
  • Cook until most liquid is absorbed, but not until casserole is dry, about an hour.
