Expert Tips

  • Check the deli as well as the jam aisle to find pineapple preserves.
  • Any variety of instant long-grain rice mix can be used in this casserole. Use a 6.2-ounce package. Apricot or peach preserves can be used in place of the pineapple preserves.
  • To reduce the fat in each serving of this casserole by about 25 grams, use turkey kielbasa or smoked turkey sausage in place of kielbasa.
