Almond Wild Rice

Almond Wild Rice

"Made with both brown rice and wild rice, this popular pilaf has a hint of fruity sweetness, thanks to golden raisins. I prepare the casserole the morning of the party, then refrigerate it in an ovenproof dish to heat through later. -Mark Trinklein, Cedarburg, Wisconsin"
