This recipe is a great go to recipe. I designed this recipe to feed one person which is great if you are looking for a quick meal but you can easily adjust the amounts to feed many more. It can also be baked to make it nice and brown on top or cooked completely on the stove creating something very similar to the classic make and cheese we all had as a child. For a complete meal try adding some veggies or meat to the dish.
1 Cup Rice – White or Brown
1/4 Cup American Cheese Grated
1/8 Cup Milk – Buttermilk work best but whole or 2% would be fine also.
1/2 Tbs Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 Caramelized Onions * Optional
I start by caramelizing my onions in a small pot until soft and golden brown. Then add oil and milk and stir to combine. Next pour in cheese and continue to stir. Now add the salt and pepper and continue to stir until sauce is fully melted and combined. Finally add cooked rice and mix it all together. If you want to bake it then quickly pour into a casserole disk and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. If you would prefer to finish it on the stove top continue to cook until desired consistence is achieved.
