When down for Thanksgiving, my Mother in Law made us the best wild rice soup! She gave me the base recipe, which even she confessed she never follows. =) So, here is the base recipe, with all of my changes in parenthesis. Both my kids devoured this stuff at Grandma's, and then once again today at dinner time. Actually, they had it for lunch and dinner today! It's that good!
Wild Rice Soup
1 cup milk
4 cups prepared rice (I used organic wild rice blend)
4 1/2 cups water (I used half organic chicken stock)
1 lb sausage (I used organic Italian)
4 cups half and half
2 cans cream soup ( I used 3 cups of my Potato Chowder)
1 lb Velveeta (I used shredded sharp cheddar)
1 lb bacon or ham (We love ham)
Mix all ingredients in a large pot and heat till simmering.
That's pretty much it!! Super easy, super good. We will be eating these leftovers with pleasure!
