Questions, Comments & Reviews

Excellent! This was probably one of the first things I ever made as a kid. The cookbook didn't survive, but my memories of the dish sure did. I was really happy to see this again. It's great with pork or lamb.

I too!! am so happy to finally locate this recipe. I used to make it often when first married and hardly had a food budget. This was so good. I saved the recipe, but lost it in recent years. I like to mix up the rices with brown, barley, and wild rice, using only about 1/3 white. I would also use olive oil in place of shortening. And a little grated parmesean or romano. Thanks so much for posting.

Thanks for publishing this recipe. It is one of my favorites and the page in my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook has disappeared. This was my first cookbook given to me by mother when I finished grad school and moved into my first apartment. Thanks again.
