Paula Dean’s Wild Rice & Mushroom Side

This is so good! I lightened it up w bit because PD is ridiculous (in a good way).

1.5 sticks butter
1 16 oz package of baby Bella’s chopped roughly
3 cups (or so) of cooked wild rice (I could see this blended with quinoa – try next time)
1 med white onion, chopped
2 T all purpose flour
1 c milk
1/2 cup sherry (I used dry white wine and it was fine)
S + P
1/2 c buttered breadcrumbs (honestly I think this is optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Melt the butter and cook the onion and mushrooms in it. After a few minutes push them to the side and add the flour, then combine with the pan. The milk stirring constantly. Then add the sherry, S+P. then fold in the rice.

Pour into your greased baking dish and add breadcrumbs on top. Bake for 15 min or until the top is brown.
