NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces fully cooked beer bratwurst, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 8 -ounce package sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 carrot, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts separated)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup grated Swiss cheese (about 4 ounces)
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bratwurst, mushrooms, celery, carrot, scallion whites and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms soften, about 4 minutes.

  • Add the rice and cook, stirring to coat, 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, half-and-half and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer, then cover the skillet and transfer to the oven. Bake until the rice is tender, about 18 minutes.

  • Switch the oven to broil. Uncover the rice and sprinkle with the cheese. Broil until the cheese is browned and bubbling, about 2 minutes. Top with the scallion greens. Photograph by Antonis Achilleos
