Southern Cheesy Rice Pudding
1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Flour
3/4 teaspoon deied marjoram leaves
1.4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
1+ 1/2 Cup Milk (Low fat works great)
1+1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar cheese. About 6 ounces.
3 cups (Cooked) long grain white rice.
2 large egg white
1 large whole egg.
You can use 3 whole eggs to make it richer. Using a couple of whites just makes it lower in fat and cholesterol.
Cook rice and set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter and whisk in the flour, marjoram, salt, and pepper and cook for about 1 minute or until bubbly. Add milk. Cook whisking constantly, until the mixture starts thickening. Stir in the cheese until melted and thoroughly incorporated.
In a medium size bowl, combine the rice, eggs. Stir and then put in the cheese mixture. Spoon or pour into a lightly greased 8X8X2 inch baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the center is set. Makes about 6 good size servings. I hope this is the one you are looking for. This is used as a main dish in Tennessee where all my family are from.
