Recipe... all the credit goes to Paula Deen!!

  I somehow stumbled upon this recipe while on Kelly's Korner blog and OH MY GOSH it is wonderful and awesome!!!!! If you love shrimp this casserole is great and easy and even better the next day, enjoy!!! Paula Deen's Wild Rice and Shrimp Casserole

(Photo and recipe are by Paula Deen)

I took a picture of the casserole I made and deleted it somehow. This is REALLY good. If your husband is like mine - he won't eat anything with the name "casserole" in it so I just called it Wild Rice and Shrimp Supreme and he liked it.


  • 1 (8-ounce) package wild rice
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce can) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups grated sharp Cheddar
  • Salt and pepper


Cook the rice according to package directions minus 1/4 cup water. Drain and cool.
Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 tablespoon salt to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook the shrimp for 1 minute. Drain immediately and set aside.
Heat the butter in saucepan and saute the pepper and onion until soft, about 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the rice, soup, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, shrimp and vegetables. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well. Spray a 9-inch square aluminum cake pan or an 11 by 7-inch glass casserole dish with vegetable spray. Place the mixture in the pan and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly.

The Lyrics to my fav song!! :-)

I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin’ right on through
And our love’s the only truth
That’s why I run to you

Repeat Chorus
