I hope you will participate with Lori (All That Splatters) and I in this weeks's Weekend Blog Showcase.
Just share a recipe that you found on another blogger's site. A great way to introduce one of your favourite blogs.
More instructions for participating are at the end of this post.
Showcasing the blog - Chef Tess Bakeresse this week and her recipe for Homemade Rice-A-Roni.
I can't remember the last time I ate Rice-A-Roni. It wasn't something that I made more than once or twice when Matt was young, because he didn't care for it.
I was looking for a dish to serve as a side with the little rack of porkI was going to do on the grill the other night.
Looked through Tastespotting and Google Images and found a few photos and recipes that looked and sounded appealing.
I made a few changes to the recipe, mostly minor. You can find the original recipe here on Chef Tess Bakeresse.
Homemade Rice-A-Roni2 tablespoons butter
1 cup long grain rice
1/2 cup vermicelli or
spaghetti noodles, broken into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups chicken stock or more as needed
1/2 small onion chopped
1 minced garlic clove
Melt butter in skillet. Add the broken up pasta and saute until noodles are brown. Do not Burn.
Add the onion and garlic, saute for a minute or two. Add the rice and toss to coat. Add enough broth to cover rice and be about 1/2 inch over the top. Cover and simmer on low until rice is tender and all the liquid as evaporated.
Remove from heat, cover rice with paper towels, put the lid back on and leave to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove lid and fluff with a fork.
To participate in Weekend Blog Showcase, pick a recipe from a blog other than your own (Tastespotting and Foodgawker are great places for inspiration), make the recipe and post about it on your own blog, crediting the originating blog with the recipe. Then sign into Mr. Linky. Add the Weekend Blog Showcase Logo to your post and if you feel like it leave a comment here. That's all there is to it! Lori and I look forward to your participation
