Recipe For Baked Rice (Maltese Dish): Inside The Kitchen

Let’s talk about Maltese cuisine! My Nanna and mother came over on Sunday and I put them to WORK. I already posted about the Torta – a traditional meat pie – and wanted to get one of my other favorite dishes on LATB, baked rice. YUM!!!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Brown about a pound of meat and then add one jar of marinara sauce. Traditionally, my grandmother would make her own sauce, but we didn’t have enough time before lunch – so I opened up a jar and it was JUST FINE.  You also want to drain out some of the oil from the meat. My Nanna doesn’t do this, but I am telling you to go ahead and drain the meat before you add the sauce.

Pour 2 cups of uncooked rice into your pan. Then pour the meat sauce over the rice.  Add salt and pepper plus a 1/2 teaspoon of curry.

Scramble two eggs and pour into mixture. Then add 1 cup of grated cheese and 2 cups of water. Stir for a few minutes making sure it all blends.

Cook for one hour uncovered.  SO SO GOOD!!!!
