Minnesota Wild Rice Hotdish Recipe

If you grew up in MN, you've most likely eaten this or something similar at some point. I remember eating this at potlucks or family gatherings alot throughout my childhood. I was super excited I found this recipe online so I could try it again. The smell of it baking in the oven brings back alot of memories! Mushrooms would be a great addition to this recipe as the original suggests. We love how it turned out and served it with some bread! Yum!

What you need:
1 pound ground beef
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 c. celery, sliced
1 c. carrots, sliced
1 c. wild rice, rinsed well
3 tbsp. soy sauce
2 c. cold water
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the ground beef and onions. In a greased 9x13 baking dish, combine celery, carrots, and wild rice. Add ground beef and onion mixture next. In a bowl, combine water, soy sauce, pepper and soups. Pour over other ingredients and mix well. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Enjoy!
