Rob's Basic Baked Rice

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

My DH found this recipe in a Paul Prudhomme book and has adjusted it to our preferences. Great side for just about anything (especially grilled foods) with a light flavor - which doesn't end up competing with your other dishes. Really easy to make, just toss it in the oven and forget about it (so to speak) while you work on other things. :) We tend to like the gorgonzola cheese lately, but feta also works really nicely. It all depends on what your main dish flavor is and your preference. Cooking times can vary - we find 70 minutes works perfectly for us.

I made this recipe twice. The first time I halved it and I must have done something wrong because while the flavour was great the rice didn't get cooked properly. Last might I made it again using the full recipe and checked it after 1 hour. The rice was still quit hard so I added another 1/2 of broth and nuked it for 5 minutes before putting it back in the over to get a bit of a crust. Perfect!
I'm giving this a four for the great taste and ease of prep and cooking. When I make it again I would add an addition cup of liquid from the start. It may be a problem with the difference in altitude effecting the absorbtion of liquid - who knows? It's a keeper and with that one adjustment I expect to make it for years to come.
