Prior to making this Sweet Potato Rice Casserole I had never considered cooking rice in a fruit juice, but it adds a totally new flavor element to the dish.  It would be delicious prepared with apple juice, brown sugar, and walnuts or pecans for breakfast!  My kids and I love to eat rice (with a little sprinkle of sugar and pat of butter) for breakfast with cinnamon toast.

I love the texture that the rice adds to this Thanksgiving classic.
