Thank you Better Homes and Gardens for this one. I can always count on that cookbook when I need a simple, elegant dish. It’s not what I go to for something different and funky, but a classic, foolproof dish? Absolutely.
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup sliced button mushrooms
- 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3/4 cup long grain rice
- 1 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
In a medium saucepan, cook the onion, mushrooms, green pepper, and garlic in butter until tender.
Add the rice, boillon granules, black pepper, and 1 1/2 cups of water.
Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, cook and crumble your bacon.
When the rice is cooked through and the majority of the water has evaporated, stir in the bacon.
Makes 4 servings.
