Minute Rice Dinner Win!

As a mom who has recently started working outside the home, I know how stressful dinnertime can be. Even when I was at home with my boys all day, coloring and playing most of the day, the hour before dinner never failed to be chaotic. Since my boys were born, I’ve struggled with how to meet everyone’s needs at the moment while working ahead to put a delicious and healthy dinner on the table. Who wants to spend hours planning meals that will only add to the stress of a busy day? Not me!

Last night’s dinner featured Minute Rice and was super simple to make and tasted SO GOOD! Minute Rice has many great-looking recipes on their website and my husband and I chose this Cheeseburger Rice for our dinner menu this week. Using many ingredients we already had on hand, we quickly made this tasty dish with only a few minor adjustments to the recipe — a dash of Worchestershire sauce, slightly less onion than called for in the recipe — and let the Minute Rice do the rest!

Dinner in a Minute with Minute Rice

To make this Cheeseburger Rice, you’ll need ground beef, onion, ketchup, mustard, shredded cheese, and of course, Minute Rice! It’s so easy to make, you can turn your focus to your kids, asking them about their day. Knowing you’re creating a yummy meal that isn’t complicated or time-consuming will help put your mind at ease while your stomach growls for dinner. Another bonus is that this meal is made in and served from one dish, so you won’t have a mountain of dirty dishes in the sink just from making dinner! You may want to serve it with a side salad, and you can easily do that while the rice, beef, onions, and the rest are simmering in the skillet.

We went from an empty skillet to sitting down to enjoy dinner in less than 30 minutes. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make! The melty cheese on top, combined with the other ingredients, really made for a delicious cheeseburger taste. It was so good, my husband I both had seconds!

  1. You know, we use tons of rice for Asian dishes and I’ve never really looked twice at the boxed stuff. It would be *really* nice to not have to take a half hour just for the rice!
