Well we finally figured out our Internet problem yesterday.  Our router died.  We picked up a new one last night and Hubby connected everything up. So now, without further ado, is the Tuesday recipe for you all…

Rice Souffle and green beans…an old family favourite I haven’t made in years.

Rice Souffle

For those of you who don’t know…making souffle is a tricky business.  The slightest vibration and the whole mixture heaves a sigh and collapses.  This is not good!  So once the egg whites are mixed in with the rest of the batter, tread softly!  Send little bodies outside or park them in front of a TV or computer in a room far away.  You want absolute quiet.  Better yet, make this for a special date night when the kiddos are having a sleepover someplace!  The good news is, even if this does fall, it still tastes yummy.

Serves 4

1/2     cup  uncooked brown rice
4        tablespoons  margarine
4        tablespoons  flour
2        cups  milk
1/4     teaspoon  paprika
1 1/2  teaspoons  salt
1/8     teaspoon  dry mustard
4        tablespoons  cheese — grated
3        eggs — separate out yolks

Cook rice till tender.  Rinse with hot, then cold water, drain.

Melt margarine, remove from heat,  add flour and mix to smooth paste.  Add milk and cook over low until thick.

Beat egg yolks, add rice, sauce, seasonings and cheese.  Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites and pour into greased shallow pan.

Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes and serve immediately.
