“It just doesn't get much easier than this fool-proof rice sidedish. It won't look like much when it goes in the oven, but trust me, it comes out perfect every time. I've been making it for holiday dinners for years. It takes 5 minutes or less to throw together and can go in the oven with those other last minute dishes or prepare it ahead and reheat in the microwave at serving time if oven space is a problem. Note: The original recipe called for 1/2 cup butter but I found that to be excessive.”
