Easy Cheesy Rice Recipe


Steak and “Cheesy Rice” is kind of a family tradition in our house. I have been enjoying this recipe since I can remember. When my husband and I first met 15 years ago, he also fell in love with this side dish, and now, our kids love it too! With it being only 5 ingredients and taking probably 3 minutes to put together, it is a really easy and delicious option if you are looking for a new side dish.

Ingredients:
-1 cup of rice
-1 can of Beef Consomme
-1 can Golden Mushroom Soup
-½ a stick of butter
-¼-½ cup of mild cheddar cheese (we use 2% reduced fat)

***Our original family recipe actually calls for a whole stick of butter, but we started making it with only a ½ stick to cut back on calories and we honestly can not tell much of a difference.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put 1 cup rice, 1 can of Beef Consomme, 1 can Golden Mushroom Soup and ½ stick butter in casserole dish
  3. Stir together
  4. Cover and put in oven on 350 degrees for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes
  5. After it has been in the oven for an hour, stir and make sure the rice feels done. Then add your cheese to the top.
  6. Leave uncovered and put back in the oven until cheese is melted

If you divide the side dish up into 8 servings, each serving is 170 calories according to My Fitness Pal.

I know this is not a fancy looking dish, but I promise it is so good!
