The wild rice gives this traditional recipe something different from the average noodle and white rice recipes you will find out there. This dish is very satisfying, both as a side or a main dish. wild rice tuna casserole

You can prepare this dish with chicken, turkey or hamburger as well or make vegetarian, all four ways are amazing. However it’s best made with a good quality wild rice  mixture, the more natural the better since these types of rice blends contains many nutrients that other processed rice would not.

The panko crumbs and cheese topping give it that nice crunch so do not skip that combination.

I like to use my dutch oven for this recipe, if you do not have a dutch oven then feel free to use a sauteing pan and then a casserole dish once it ready to go into the oven.  Some people like to add grated cheese over top before baking, i don’t. And that is because i prefer the earthy taste of the dish, I encourage you to try it this way = delicious.

 

Our family’s favorite wild rice blend comes from Costco 

If you end up giving this a give it a try, I would love to know how you liked it. Bon Appetit!

 

Note: Instead of green peppers add, celery or peas.
