DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Drop the rice into 4 quarts of boiling salted water and boil for 5 minutes exactly. Drain immediately.
  • Add the 4 Tbsp of butter to a 3-quart, fireproof casserole and place in the oven.
  • When the butter is foaming in the casserole, stir in the onions. As soon as they are well coated with butter, stir in the rice and seasonings.
  • Cover and cook very slowly in the 300°F oven for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The rice and onions should become very tender and will usually turn a light golden yellow.
  • Correct seasoning.
  • Just before serving, stir in the cream and cheese, and then the butter. Taste again for seasoning. Turn into a hot vegetable dish and sprinkle with parsley.
