Minnesota Wild Rice Hotdish


Minnesota Wild Rice Hotdish

This take on hotdish has only 6 real ingredients and is so simple to make. Keep it vegetarian or add some leftover chicken, either way it is the perfect meal on a cold fall night.


  • ½ cup butter or ghee
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth


In a large skillet, sauté everything except the broth for 10 minutes.

Pour into a 2-quart baking dish, add broth, cover and bake at 350°F for 2 to 2 ½ hours until broth is absorbed.

Make it up to two days in advance so it’s ready.

Turn your leftover turkey, gravy, broth and wild rice hotdish into a pot of Turkey Wild Rice Soup. Just combine, heat, and eat.


You can make the stuffing up to two days in advance and store in the fridge.
