Really easy & yummy recipe. <br/>I amended the recipe and added some marinated roasted red peppers, as well as some parm cheese, black pepper and a bit less milk. <br/>I also topped it with some smoked paprika and some french fried onions for some crunch. <br/>Great recipe and a keeper. Thanks Oolala.
I found this looking for something to do with a bunch of leftover basmati rice. Very tasty, although a very mild flavor. I like Martha's suggestion in the future of adding something like chiles or other spices to bump up the flavor. Seeing didyb's review, I decreased the amount of milk to around 1 2/3 cup and used a bit extra rice (around 1/4 cup extra). I also increased the cook temp to 375 and it still took about 45 min. I suspect we will be making this again, with some modifications as I mentioned already.
It was good. I had to increase the temp and cook time to get in done in 45 minutes. Next time I will decrease the amount of milk by 1/2 cup to help it get done in 30 minutes at 350. I had leftover mexican rice so it had some extra flavor to it. The idea of adding chilies is a good idea. Thanks for a good rice recipe.
I had left over brown rice and it worked very nicely. Also, I tool Martha's advice and added more salt...a word of caution, 1 t. is too much!!! My family is used to my oversalting, unfortunately, but I would say 1/2 t. would work well. I think it's a great recipe. Something I was looking for for this leftover (healthful) brown rice. Thanks.
What a great way to use up leftover rice. I always seem to have leftovers. My picky 18 month old at about 1/7 of this entire casserolle for lunch today. I personally would have liked more salt. But, I veer on the salty side. I'm going to try adding a tad bit more dry mustard and some drained diced chilies next time to add more spice. I can see adding a lot of different things to this... leftover bacon, sausage, hash browns, onions, peppers etc. Thanks for adding life to my boring leftovers!
