This turned out to be my favorite dish this Christmas! This is not a skimpy rice dish. It puffs up beautifully (and evenly) in your pan and resembles a hearty potato dish. Everyone loved it at our table. It would go just as nicely with a steak dinner, too. This was taken from a church cookbook in Virginia. I doubled it and cooked it in a 9x13 pan.
