Sausage and Wild Rice Casserole

We never seem to tire of making new things to eat.  We love good food and strong flavors.  We also like to use up ingredients that have set in the refrigerator or cupboard for a while.  This time it was wild rice.  And to be totally truthful I love just about anything with sausage in it.

We also like to work with fresh ingredients not a lot of cans.

1 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
1 large red pepper, coarsely chopped
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 tsp thyme
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2 tbsp cornstarch
4 tbsp butter
2 cups milk
1 cup wild rice
1 cup brown rice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Stir rices together in the bottom of a large covered baking dish.  Set aside.

In a large skillet brown sausage and drain off fat.  Add mushrooms, celery, pepper, onion, thyme and cook until vegetables are crisp tender.

In a small sauce pan melt butter and stir in cornstarch.  Add milk and cook stirring constantly until thick, add with chicken broth and Worcestershire sauce to vegetable mixture.  Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Pour hot mixture over rice mix.

Stir together the sausage mixture, rice and 1/2 cup cheese.  Cover with lid and bake at 350 degrees for 1-1 1/2 hour or until the rice done.  Remove from oven, stir and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

I reheats for great leftovers too.  Enjoy!
