This dish is amazing! My family demands it every Thanksgiving as a side. It tastes best when the rice is firmer in texture. I usually prepare the rice ahead of time in a rice cooker. Brown rice is equally delicious. I think I'll try it with quinoa, just to see if it is as tasty. Enjoy!

I took others' advice and did half the brown sugar. Since I only had dried parsley, I did the conversion, which would've made it about 5 tsp. That seemed like a lot so I only did 3 tsp. I also lowered the amount of onion (personal preference). I used craisins instead of raisins. I only used 2.5 C of rice (all I had left). I don't normally change a recipe so much but these seemed like minor changes in the overall grand scheme. We LOVED this. "Autumn Sausage Casserole" is a very apt name. We thought it was a tad dry, but not overly dry. Not sure how to fix the dryness issue, but we're still going to make this again either way!

I almost forgot the brown sugar too, Kimb0! I added about half of the brown sugar, and both my husband and I liked it better without it. I think the sweetness of the raisins was enough. (I used a mix of raisins, golden raisins and dried cherries.) We really enjoyed this recipe because it was so different. I served it with the Fresh Tomato Basil Tart also from TOH.

I forgot the brown sugar and am pretty sure I peppered it twice, but it was still amazing!!! Look forward to making it again!!

Five stars! I made this exactly as written and it was excellent! I think I may try adding a little sage next time, but this recipe is a KEEPER!

My husband and I loved this dish! I didn't have celery on hand so I substituted bell pepper. I also used pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar. YUM! Will definitely make this again.

This is a family favorite in our house! I usually substitute carrots for the celery and add peppers. I also sometimes will switch out craisins for the raisins. SO yummy. Flavors are very warm and not too sweet.
