This recipe is for Jerry. He is the father of my son-in-law Mark.

Tired of left over turkey? Here's another easy recipe using
boxed Rice A Roni. Very tasty. On the table in about 40 minutes.


1 box Beef Rice A Roni
1 pound ground beef cooked and crumbled. You can cook the beef in the 
same skillet and drain off the excess grease, then remove to a separate 
2 Tbsp. butter
2 1/2 cups hot water
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. pepper
the 3 spices are optional, but remember I put these into all my
savory dishes.
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper (optional--I don't use, but you
might want a kick of heat.)
1 cup of sour cream (let it sit out while you prepare the rice to
take off the chill.)


In a large skillet, combine the rice and the butter. Saute
over medium heat till the rice is golden brown. Stir
Add the cooked ground beef to the skillet.
Slowly stir in the hot water and the special seasonings,
bring to a boil.
Cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes
or until rice is tender.
Take off heat after the 20 minutes and stir in the sour cream
to combine. Cover and let sit for about 10-15 minutes, then serve.

This is a great left-over. Will keep in the fridge for about 2 days.
