Author's Notes

This ground beef and rice casserole is the perfect recipe to use your leftovers in. Feel free to use cooked rice from the day before.

You can use any mix of vegetables you have or a frozen vegetable mix. For this recipe, I had some carrots, green peppers, and corn in the fridge, which worked great. But you can make this casserole with mushrooms, peas, broccoli, or any other vegetables you like. Don’t use vegetables with high water content like zucchini, celery, or cucumbers because they can make your casserole too soggy.
