Hello there– I have a favorite old cookbook that I got for a wedding gift 38 years ago– The Pillsbury New Family Cookbook (not so new now!). I’ve made dozens of recipe from that book and it looks like it’s been well used, held together with ugly brown electrical tape. I noticed this dish years ago, and always intended to make it. So with a few tweaks, here’s good old Spinach Cheddar Rice.
SPINACH CHEDDAR RICE
1 cup rice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1 cup grated cheddar
1 cup spinach leaves, cut in shreds
1/3 tsp. garlic salt
Cook the rice in 2 cups of water with the salt, simmering on low for ten minutes. Then beat the 2 eggs. Stir in the milk, cheddar, spinach and garlic salt. Finally mix in the rice and turn it all into a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes until it starts to brown around the edges. Simple and good.
