Rice and Sausage Casserole
Is it a stuffing? A dressing? This surprising dish is neither, but it belongs on the Thanksgiving table.
Why This Recipe Works
To make this savory rice dish, we cooked the rice in the oven to approximate the controlled, indirect heat of a rice cooker (with no risk of scorching). Swapping flavorless water for a combination of chicken broth, wine, and cream added complexity. Adding 1/2 pound of bulk sausage gave the dish meaty richness. A hefty dose of fresh parsley at the end brightened up the dish.
