It only takes 4 ingredients to make this easy French Onion Soup Rice side dish that is packed full of flavor! It goes wonderfully with any main course and is great to serve to guests.
I saw this recipe floating around Pinterest years ago and knew I had to make it right away. The original recipe is actually called “Stick of Butter Rice”. Yep, you heard me right – a STICK of butter in this recipe. I mean, it’s not like you’re eating the whole dish as it serves 6 people. Therefore, I wanted to change the name as to not scare off any healthy eaters out there.
This french onion rice bake is the perfect side dish for any meal and is most definitely holiday dinner worthy, which is why I’m sharing it so close to Thanksgiving. Everyone loves a good ol’ fluffy mound of mashed potatoes on their plate alongside their turkey, but how about adding something different this year? Don’t be afraid of change (I’m totally talking to myself here, mostly). I hate change! You can throw this together in a hot minute and concentrate on your other, more high-maintenance side dishes (and high-maintenance dinner guests you may have….ha, ha…sorry, I had to). It tastes like French onion soup turned into a rice dish!
Serve this french onion rice bake with a roast, chicken dish….the sky is the limit. Check out my collection of Thanksgiving recipes if you need some inspiration! It’s all together for you in one post because I’m super helpful like that.
- 1 c. uncooked white rice (NOT instant rice - this will cook too quickly and get mushy)

- 1 (10 oz) can of Beef Broth
- ½ c. of butter, sliced
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- In a 9x9 inch baking dish (8x8 would also work fine) combine rice, soup and broth.
