This is a great dish with green peppers & parsley. As a side dish it's tremendous with any protein. I love it, leftover, for lunch. And I really like making small patties and frying them to serve with lunch or dinner.
3 C. leftover cooked rice (cooled to room temperature)
1 C. parsley, chopped
1/2 C. grated Cheddar cheese
1/3 C. onion, chopped – I like the green & white of parts of green onions
1/4 C. green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14-1/2 oz) Evaporated Milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 C. veggie oil – or butter – or half butter & half oil
1 T. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 lemon, zest & juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix rice, parsley, cheese, onion, green pepper, garlic in greased 2 quart casserole. Blend rest of ingredients. Mix into rice. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake approximately 45 minutes, or until it looks like a soft custard.
