We’ve dressed up this one-pot wild rice dish with rich sausage, fragrant herbs, and earthy mushrooms. During the holidays, it can be a decadent alternative to traditional stuffing, but it’s also a comforting and elegant dish for any time of the year.

Progresso Broth

Steps

  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until cooked through. Drain, and set aside.
  • 2
    Clean out Dutch oven; melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add onions and thyme; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions begin to brown and soften. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and stir to melt; stir in mushrooms and celery. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms release juices and then brown.
  • 3
    Stir in wine; simmer 3 to 4 minutes, scraping pan to release browned bits. Once liquid is almost evaporated, stir in sausage, broth and whipping cream; stir in wild rice. Heat to boiling over high heat; cover, and cook over medium-low heat 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, without stirring, until rice is tender. Top with parsley and walnuts.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cremini mushrooms make an excellent substitute for the white mushrooms in this recipe.
  • tip 2
    To get as much flavor off the bottom of the Dutch oven as possible, use a wooden spoon (instead of a rubber spatula) after adding the wine.
