Such a fun recipe! Just remember that wild rice should actually be called tough rice because it takes a long time to cook, and you don’t cook it like regular rice – it’ll have some extra water left over in the process of cooking and you’ll drain it out (I know, a bit technical, but I am setting you up for success here). While the rice cooks, you brown the onions and sausage and then you mix it all together and yes, you can totally make this the day before.
