This is a really good way of using up leftover rice, which seems to be quite a usual occurrence in my household.
I either make this oven rice as a side dish for another meal, or I make rice pudding. One thing is for sure, rice never goes to waste in this house :)
Cheese and Bacon Oven Baked Rice
4 cups of cooked rice
4 slices of bacon, diced
3 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar or any other cheese you have on hand
salt and pepper
1 cup of milk
In a bowl, mix the rice, bacon and parsley. Transfer to a baking dish greased with butter.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, cheeses and salt and pepper. Pour over the rice.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
