Pork and Wild Rice Casserole

Pork and Wild Rice Casserole

"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."

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.

Made it out together with some other recipes. And it's worth it! Love how this dish comes up to that my family loved! Glad to try it out. ;) Will make it again for sure.

My husband loves this dish. This dish freezes well too. I made a few edits, changes and additions. No bacon. About 1 pound ground seasoned pork is fine (add italian seasoning to pork and mix ...

Since I'm a vegetarian, we omitted the meat in this and also added some Italian seasonings to make up for the flavor. The boyfriend and I found that some of the recipe was vague, particularly th...
