1/2 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp pepper
2 cups half-and-half (I use fat free half-and-half)
1 1/2 cups cubed, cooked, turkey or chicken
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
1 tbs. chopped pimento
2 to 3 Tbs. dry sherry, if desired
I large saucepan, combine chicken broth and water. Add wild rice and green onions; cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover simmer 35-40 minutes or until rice is tender.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In medium saucepan, melt butter: stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly; until smooth and bubbly.
Gradually stir in half-and-half; cook until slightly thickened; stirring constantly.
Slowly add half-and-half mixture into rice mixture; stirring constantly.
Add remaining ingredients
Heat gently, stirring frequently; do not boil. Garnish each serving with additional green onion and bacon.
NOTE: You can tell this is an old recipe because I don’t think Campbell’s makes cans of condensed chicken broth any more.
