Curry White Rice Au Gratin Recipe

If you are looking for an easy to prepare white rice side dish to go along with your next meal, it doesn't get much easier than this recipe. What I love about this dish is the zippy taste given to the rice by the addition of the Curry spice. We make the recipe using butter, but you can certainly use margarine if that is what you prefer.

Rice au Gratin Recipe

3 cups hot cooked rice
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup bread, crumbled and cubed
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Toss rice with half of the cheddar cheese. Spoon into buttered baking dish, top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese melts. Meanwhile, melt butter, stir in curry powder. Add bread crumbs and brown lightly. Remove rice from oven and sprinkle with curried crumbs, salt and pepper. Makes 5 servings.

My hubby likes curry. I'm not a big fan. This recipe reminds me of a risotto.
