ingredients

serves 4
100 g (4 oz) long- grain rice
300 ml (1/2 pint) water
salt and pepper
225 g (8 oz) cooked ham, diced
4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
225 g (8 oz) Cheddar cheese, diced
bunch of parsley, chopped

for the white sauce

50 g (2 oz) butter or margarine
50 g (2 oz) plain flour
600 ml (1 pint) milk
salt and pepper

method

1. Cook the rice as instructed.

2. Mix together the ham, eggs, Cheddar, parsley and seasoning, reserving a little parsley to garnish.

3. For the white sauce, melt the butter or margarine over a low heat. Add the flour, cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, then gradually add the milk and stir until the sauce boils and thickens. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Add the seasoning.

4. Pour some of the sauce into a baking dish, followed by a layer of ham mixture, then a layer of rice. Continue layering in this fashion until all the ingredients are used up. Finish with a layer of sauce.

5. Bake in a moderately hot oven for 30 minutes until golden. Garnish with the reserved parsley, and serve hot with a green salad.

Freezer Tip
Left over rice freezes well. Pack into a polythene bag and seal. Defrost in a microwave or empty into a pan of boiling water and bring back to boil.
