This tastes much more rich than the nutritional guide would indicate. It's fantastic if you love cheese, and makes an apt side dish to just about any meat entre. You can add a pound of browned ground beef or diced, pre-cooked chicken to make this a one-dish meal! This is a family recipe from Kelly County Ireland, which has survived the years [with adaptations along the way, of course]. It was originally intended for use with potatoes. If you wish to attempt it in its original form, boil 4 large potatoes for 8 minutes, remove from pot and slice, and use in place of the rice.
