Baked Apple, Pear & Brown Rice Casserole

I recently tried Baked Apple and Brown Rice Casserole. The kids loved it!

• 1 1/2 cup cooked brown rice (leftover rice is great)
• 3 pounds variety apples, cored & diced large, either skin on or off
• 3 pears, peeled, cored, & diced large
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 3 Tablespoon butter
• 1-2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

::Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread the cooked brown rice in a layer on the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish. Reserve 2 Tablespoons

::Cut your apples and pears into large chunks. Skin can be left on or cut off. Mix them around on top of your rice until you have enough apples/pears to just about reach the top of the baking dish. Spread your sugar over the fruit.

::Cut butter into small pieces and stagger across top of apples. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg across the top.

::Sprinkle reserved rice over top for a little crunch (optional)

::Bake for 30-40 minutes, until apples are soft but not mushy
