"This recipe is a delicious use of wild rice. Just be sure to season your ground pork if you don't buy it preseasoned (usually labeled as pork sausage). Fresh Italian sausage can also be used, just cut open the casing. Works great prepared a day ahead and re-heated for 20 minutes at serving time."

I made this and shared it with some coworkers and it was a huge success! I used about 2 pounds bulk Italian sausage and about 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef. My daughter didn't think it looked to...

As written this casserole makes a lot! At 2-3 times a day, this pretty much lasted me all week. But it's good. I used regular ground pork. Would have been even better if I had preseasoned it...

My husband and I really enjoyed this. Next time I'll use it as a stuffing for Cornish game hen and add some dried cranberrys to it.
