Crock Pot Hamburger Wild Rice Casserole ~ Comforting Casserole Made in the Crock Pot and Stuffed with Hamburger and Wild Rice!

I’m sitting in front of the tv half watching the Super Bowl half writing this post. So what did you think of the big game? Favorite commercial?

Mine has got to be the Budweiser with the Clydesdale running towards his former owner. It brought back a lot of memories for this girl. Good ‘ol growing up on the farm memories.

Back in my younger days I was in 4-H and showed sheep. If you don’t know what either of those things are google it. Anyways I had this one lamb that LOVED to be led ar
ound the yard practicing for the fair. For the record most of them hated it and it provided daily frustration and me more or less dragging the sheep around the yard until they learned what to do. Probably amusing for those watching, but not for me.

Not this one. It would run up to the gate, jump up on the fence and wait for the halter around its head. I still remember it to this day. There’s just something about the feeling of having a relationship with an animal. Kind of like that Clydesdale. After remembering this I might have to go get a dog….we’ll see if the hubby agrees!Hamburger Wild Hamburger Wild Rice Casserole ~ #recipeRice Casserole

*EDIT* Well that’s what I get for writing this BEFORE the game was done. As you just read I grew up on a farm. Dodge you spoke straight to my heart. Those cracked hands reminded me of my Dad’s. Years of fixing tractors, making fence, caring for lambs, and never to busy to take his daughter’s hand and walk to the barn together. Proud to be a farmer’s daughter. Best commercial ever. End of story.


Oh the recipe? Here it is! Pretty much the best comfort dish in the world. We’ve been making this one for years and it comes from my sister-in-laws kitchen. Plus you can even make it in the Crock-Pot if you want it done when you come home!

  • Amy

    Hi! Making this right now do I add the herbs and seasonings packet from the rice box?

    • Julie Evink


      • Amy

        Thank you for the immediate response! Smells great already and I think my family will love it!

        • Julie Evink

          It’s one of our favorites! Enjoy!

  • DeAnna Lent

    Wanting to make this soon. Have everything but chicken and rice soup? Can I use something else?

    • Julie Evink

      I’m sorry DeAnna I haven’t tried anything else!

  • Kristen

    I just made this and it’s so good! DH is super picky and he loves it too! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      It’s my FAVE! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Cindy

    Can I cook this on the stovetop rather than in the crockpot? Should I follow the directions on the rice package to do that?

    • Julie Evink

      I would advise to follow the directions and actually bake it in the oven!

      • Mandi Elkins

        Hi, wondering how long you would bake it in the oven and at what temp? Going to try this at a daycare and time is limited. I did make it already for my own family in the crockpot and they loved it! Thank you!

        • Julie Evink

          It’s going to need to bake in the oven at least a hour!

  • Local Color XC

    We are trying this tonight with a slight variation or two. Using vegetable soup instead of chicken and rice soup. Using two cups brown rice instead of Uncle Bens. And adding one diced orange pepper and shredded mozzarella at the end to make it cheesy. Trying to use the ingredients we have on hand – will let you know how it goes! Thanks!

    • Julie Evink

      Let me know how those adaptions go! They sound fantastic!

  • Brittany

    I love this recipe! Do you think trying different cuts of steak would be a decent substitute for the hamburger in the recipe?

  • Cheryl

    Hi, Julie!
    I have been looking for a recipe like this, very similar to one that I made years ago. I lost the recipe and didn’t remember how to prepare it. I do remember that it was baked in the oven. I saw in one of your responses that you can bake your recipe in the oven. Could you please tell me how long to bake it and at what temperature. I am looking forward to making it soon.
    Thank you!

  • Cheryl

    Hi, Julie!
    This is very similar to a recipe that I used to make years ago. I lost the recipe and and have been searching for a long time. I remembering baking it in the oven. I noticed that in one of your comments, you said that this casserole could be baked. Would you be able to tell me how long you would bake it and at what temperature? I am looking forward to making it soon!
    Thank you!

  • Cheryl

    So sorry for the double post! I didn’t think that the first one went through!
