Sweet Onion and Rice Bake
4 cups water
1 cup rice (Uncle Ben's white converted rice suggested, not instant)
1/4 cup butter
6 cups chopped sweet onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon Frank's hot sauce
1 cup grated Swiss cheese (4 ounces)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
In a medium saucepan bring the water and rice to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile, while the rice is cooking, melt the butter in a medium skillet. Add the onion and cook until tender. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1-2 additional minutes, until fragrant. Remove from heat and add the whipping cream, hot sauce, Swiss cheese, salt and pepper. Add the rice and mix well, place in a greased 2 quart baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees covered for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes until top is beginning to brown.
