French Onion Rice

A few weeks ago, as I was looking through my pantry, I noticed I had a ton of rice. I don’t know remember if there was a sale I just HAD to take advantage of, or if I was continuously overlooking the rice I had, and buying more. I wanted to find a way to use some up quickly, so I made our favorite side dish. This french onion rice is amazing! It only takes a few minutes to throw together, and has amazing flavor! My kids love this, and even my “I don’t like rice” husband says that this is great!!



  • 1 cup uncooked white rice (not instant)
  • 1 ( 10 oz) can condensed French Onion soup
  • 1 (10 oz) can beef broth
  • 1/2 cup butter, sliced



  1. In an 8×8 baking dish, combine the rice, soup and broth.
  2. Add in the cut butter slices on top of rice mixture.
  3. Cover baking dish with tin foil and bake in a preheated oven, 425, for about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove tin foil and continue baking an additional 20-25 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
  5. Serve and enjoy!!

    Have you tried this stove top? It would be a great side dish for grilled chicken if you didn’t have to heat the house up for almost an hour.

    I personally have never tried it over the stove, however, I have heard from one person that they tried this over the stove and adjusted the liquid to 2 cups. They said it turned out great!! 🙂

    I just made this and wow everyone loved it but i didnt use as much butter so as to cut down on calories and added a bit more broth and was still so good.

    Have you tried it with brown rice? I’m thinking just a little more liquid and a bit longer cooking?

    What is the suggestion to serve 6 people. Do I double, triple etc the ingredients???

  6. Kristin says:

    This recipe makes 6 servings as is, 🙂
    My family (2 adults and 3 children) ate it and had seconds, with some still leftover!! Enjoy!!!

    I have never tried it with brown rice, but I would think it would work great! Just adjust time and liquid as you mentioned!! Keep us posted on how it turns out!! 🙂

    we’ve been making this for a long time. We always put a can of drained mushrooms in too. We’ve also added browned hamburger to it and made it a meal.

    My mom used to make this for us when we were kids! Except she adds a can of mushrooms as well. I had forgotten about this until I saw this recipe!
