Great recipe! Like others suggested I pre-cooked the rice before combining it with the liquids and used oven instead of microwave. Half an hour on 375 degrees without a cover and I had delicious rice with almost no work from me! Thanks for sharing I will definitely make this again. Read More

Too easy! So simple and very good. I did not have a can of onion soup so I substituted a can of beef broth and minced 1/4 of an onion. I also seasoned with a sprinkle of garlic powder seasoned salt and black pepper. After making the dish I then thought instead of adding the dry seasonings one could dash the recipe with a little worcestershire. Whatever way you choose to make this recipe keep in mind that it's very good on it's own so it does not need more than a sprinkle of seasonings. We will definitely make this again!! Read More

My boyfriend's sister gave me this recipe a few months back and now we make it all the time at home. It is so easy because there is not a lot of work to put into it and it can cook in the microwave while you are preparing other dishes. However we use a different variation of this recipe.. 1.) Melt the butter in the microwave by itself. 2.) Then add the rice. 3.) Pour 1 can of french onion soup & 1 can of beef consomme on top of rice- Do not stir! 4.) Cook for 20 minutes. Then stir it up and put it back in the microwave for 5-10 more minutes to make sure the rice is fully cooked. You will LOVE this recipe! Read More

This was really excellent! I substituted water and one packet of onion soup mix for the can of soup and also precooked regular rice as many others did. It turned out great in the microwave. The only thing I didn't care for was the butter - there was entirely too much. Decreasing 1 stick of butter by 1/4 would most likely be fine. The casserole was literally swimming in butter. Read More

This was fantastic! I didn't have 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup so I used a can full of 2% milk instead. We also used brown rice because that's what we buy. The nuttiness of the brown rice paired really well with the mushroom flavor. I think I will stick with my variations because we liked it so well. Great recipe! Read More

This recipe was really good! I made it for my boyfriend and myself and he really loved it since he doesn't like french onion. I decided to make a few modifications though. I cooked the rice in chicken broth until the rice was half way done then baked it in the oven on 350 since I'm not big on making dishes in the microwave. But I will definitely be making this again.
