I am looking for this recipe that contained hamburger, wild rice, mushrooms, and I think
water chestnuts were in it too. Hoping you can help me find this recipe. It was so delicious.

Douglas Wild Rice Hot Dish
1/2 cup finely diced celery
2 (10-oz.) cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1 (4-oz.) can sliced water chestnuts (optional)
1-1/2 cup wild rice
1 pound well-browned hamburger
1 (10-oz.) can cream of celery soup
salt, pepper and garlic to taste
Sauté the celery and onion in oil. Add the browned hamburger. Wash the rice well and cook
in 6 to 8 cups water until done, at least 20 minutes. Mix all ingredients together and add
the soups and water chestnuts. Season to taste. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

Note: Cox that she tweaks the seasonings by adding thyme, marjoram, a hint of basil and oregano.
"I usually cook the rice in homemade chicken stock for added flavor," she said.
