More About This Recipe

  • Don’t knock it ‘til you try it—that’s our advice when it comes to this rice casserole. It’s a dump-and-go dinner that’s pretty much Asian fusion cuisine. A good ol’ fashioned Midwestern favorite hot dish gets an Asian flavor twist with rice, soy sauce and crunchy chow mein noodles. And like all of our favorite casseroles, this recipe can be made ahead of time. If you’d like to make it the night before, you can follow the recipe until the last step. Place the mixture in your baking dish, cover and keep in the refrigerator overnight. When you’re ready to make it, top with the chow mein noodles, bake and continue to follow the recipe.
