I adapted this recipe from one of our old favorites – Sour Cream Noodle Bake. The original recipe uses noodles. I’ve been on a rice casserole kick lately, so I decided to swap out the noodles for rice. The result was a fantastic quick weeknight meal!

This Sour Cream Beef and Rice Casserole has quickly become one of our favorites. I love all the flavors in this dish! I also love how easy it is to make. I usually have browned hamburger meat in my freezer, so this literally takes about 5 minutes to throw together. We serve this with some green beans and a crusty roll for a delicious weeknight meal!

  1. This is actually really good! I stumbled across it when I was looking for a new ground beef/rice casserole recipe. I didn't have cottage cheese so put about 3 T of cream cheese in. I also wanted more veggies, so I added a half onion (sautéed) and some corn. The creamy rice base is really nice.

  2. I just have to say that I love your recipes along with your comments about them. I receive many recipe emails because I run a group for people with mental health problems and we cook here at least once a month. I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your hard work!
