Keyword: baked rice, cheese, cheesy rice, ham, rice, spam, vegetables

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Cooked Rice
  • Luncheon meat or spam cubed
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/2 cup Mixed vege corn, peas, carrots
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Sunflower oil
  • Chopped parsley optional

Cheese Sauce;

  • 2 packets of Campbell's instant mushroom soup mix
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Hot water

Instructions

  • In a wok, heat some sunflower oil and sautee the onions and garlic.
  • Add the cubed spam. Stir-fry till cooked. Add rice and the mixed vege. Season with salt and pepper. Be sparing with the salt because you will add the sauce and cheese.
  • In a separate pot, dilute the soup mix with a little hot water. Add the cream and turn on the heat to low.
  • When it is hot, add the grated cheese. If it is too thick, dilute with more water.
  • Scoop the rice into an oven bakeware.
  • Pour the cheese sauce over the rice. Make sure it gets into the nooks and crannies.
  • Top with more shredded cheddar and Parmesan. I find Parmesan cheese gives a nicer gratinated effect.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 180C oven for about 15 mins or till the top has browned.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley.
