Easy Oven Fried Rice

This recipe—from Sam’s family—is a real gem. So easy and everyone will ask you for the recipe. I’m not usually a fan of canned mushrooms, but sometimes you need something super-easy that you can just dump, cook, stir, and serve! I recommend Brandywine mushrooms.  Oven Fried Rice 2013-08-05 17:49:04 Serves 6 Write a review Save Recipe Print Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 1 hr 30 min Total Time 1 hr 40 min Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 1 hr 30 min Total Time 1 hr 40 min 415 calories 54 g 0 g 19 g 6 g 1 g 139 g 1126 g 1 g 0 g 17 g Nutrition Facts Serving Size 139g Servings 6 Amount Per Serving Calories 415 Calories from Fat 169 % Daily Value * Total Fat 19g 29% Saturated Fat 1g 7% Trans Fat 0g Polyunsaturated Fat 3g Monounsaturated Fat 14g Cholesterol 0mg 0% Sodium 1126mg 47% Total Carbohydrates 54g 18% Dietary Fiber 1g 5% Sugars 1g Protein 6g Vitamin A0%Vitamin C0% Calcium3%Iron4% * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Ingredients 2 cups Uncle Ben's Original Parboiled Long Grain Rice 1 package Lipton's Onion Soup Mix 4 tablespoons soy sauce 1/2 cup vegetable oil (recommended: Crisco) - I use less than half a cup 1 regular or two small cans sliced mushrooms (recommended: Brandywine) water Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place rice and onion soup mix in a 2-quart casserole dish. Drain mushrooms into a measuring cup; add enough water to the juice to make 3 cups of liquid. Add mushrooms, liquid, oil, and soy sauce to casserole dish; stir all ingredients very well. Cover tightly and bake for 1 1/2 hours. (Do not remove lid before the time is up!) The mushrooms will all come to the top. Leave the lid on till you're ready to serve; mix well and serve! Notes You can cook for one hour earlier in the day, keep covered, and then put back in the oven for a half hour together with your chicken or beef or whatever else you're cooking. Delicious on day 2 or 3. Freezes well. By Orna beta calories 415 fat 19g protein 6g carbs 54g more OrnaBakes...

Asian Turkey Meatballs

Asian Turkey Meatballs

The Asian flavors are a nice change from the usual Italian Style meatballs, and they are healthy to boot. (2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus per meatball.) I love that you can prepare the meatballs in advance. Perfect party food. I made a double batch for our Super Bowl Party this past Sunday and they were a huge hit. The original recipe was for four turkey burgers, but I thought it would work well as a mini-meatball appetizer—and I was right! If you can’t find Lemonaise, mix Light mayo, mustard, salt and pepper and a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, rice vinegar & pinch of sugar to taste!     I use Thai Sweet Chili sauce instead of the fresh chili. It’s a little sweet so I reduce the amount of sugar. The cucumber salad is delicious served with any Asian-flavored dish. You can use English cucumbers, double the recipe—drain and serve. Make Ahead Tips You can make the meatballs ahead and freeze. Defrost in refrigerator overnight and reheat in the microwave before plating and serving. Cool Tools Masterclad Pro Series Saute 12″ Non-Stick Pan with lid. Favorite sauté pan EVER! I discovered them at Costco on a special promotion, but you can find them online >> Instant read thermometer.
