Although I was prepared for the amount of time I would need to make this casserole, I was unprepared for the way it would look when it came out of the oven! It's really brown and looks very unappetizing. However, it is very tasty (after you add a little more salt than the recipe calls for) and it definitely hit the spot on a snowy Pennsylvania night! I probably wouldn't serve it to anyone outside of my immediate family...although I will definitely serve it to them again!
I used 1 cup of brown rice in place of the wild rice which worked out just fine.
