Grandma's Apples and Rice

Rated as 4.11 out of 5 Stars

"LIKE MOST women of her generation, my husband's grandmother was a 'no-measure cook'. This recipe of hers suffered as it was handed down, so I made an effort to work out the kinks. Finally, my husband pronounced the results as good as he remembered, and we declared it the 'official' recipe. -Joan Kasura, Silver Spring, Maryland"

We loved this. Since I was serving this with a meal and didn't want it to taste too dessert-like, I only used half the sugar. I also cut the butter in half to cut down on the calories and didn't...

GREAT breakfast rice. I love that it used brown rice. Even my husband who usually only will eat oatmeal loved it. I used homemade chunky organic applesauce and I eliminated most of the brown sug...

It's definitely more of a dessert and I omitted the fresh apple because I didn't have time to cut it up.

Absolutely delicious. It's a keeper!

Interesting combination. Not bad, but had a little too much butter and was a little bland. Is 4 tbls butter really necessary? Next time I'll use way less butter and a little more brown sugar.
