As I have just promised this recipe to a friend who is feeding hordes of hungry teenagers, this will be a quick-and-dirty posting with no pictures and minimal chat.
225g bacon, chopped (or ham or frankfurters or….)
1 onion, finely chopped
100g mushrooms, sliced
450g rice (just over 2 cups)
425g can French Onion Soup (or improvise with beef stock, extra onions & a bit of cornflour)
Fry bacon and onion gently until onion is translucent.
Add mushrooms and stir well to mix.
Add rice & fry for 1 minute.
Add soup and water.
Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20-25 min until the liquid has been absorbed.
Put the pan in the middle of the table, provide a stack of bowls and spoons, and watch the stuff evaporate.
(you can add frozen peas if you need a bit of greenery)
