  4. Add the remaining butter. Once butter has melted add the rice and stir until all the rice is coated with butter. 

  5. Continue to stir rice for about 3-4 minutes( this is called toasting the rice to bring out a nutty flavor.)

  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes.

Recipe Notes

If you are using canned condensed mushroom soup instead of homemade, use one can plus one can full of chicken broth or water as a sub. 

To make vegetarian use vegetable broth instead.

To serve as a main course option double the amount of mushrooms and onions in the recipe for a hearty dish.
