Growing up, there weren’t many things that my mama didn’t make from scratch. I remember the old bread making machine she’d put up on the counter, the yummy smell of homemade bread that filled our house, and the extra hefty helping of real butter that seeped into that warm fluffy goodness.

Bread. Who doesn’t love bread, right? But really, this post isn’t about bread. It’s about my memories of Rice A Roni. You know, that rice and noodle stuff that you buy in the box. Well, my mama didn’t make that homemade, but you sure couldn’t tell it was from a box.

Ingredients
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 small onion finely chopped

  1. First knuckle? Seriously?

    1. Yep! In the South, that’s the way we always measured for fool-proof rice! I learned that from my mom, who learned from her mom, and so on! But if you aren’t familiar with that method, a 1:1 ratio works perfectly when cooking rice. Because of the noodles, I’d add an extra 1/4 cup just in case! 🙂

  2. How many servings is this?

    1. Hi, Elise! It about 1/3 cup per person (a normal serving size of rice), it makes about 6 servings.
