This makes a great side dish. Make certain to bring the cooked rice mixture down to room temperature before adding in the beaten egg whites, and use only cold cooked rice, this is a great recipe to use up any leftover rice. If your rice has been previously salted then omit adding in any salt.

- 1 1⁄2 cups half-and-half cream or 1 1⁄2 cups full-fat milk
- 3⁄4 cup water
- salt and pepper
