1 1/3 cup long grain rice
7 oz frozen peas
1 medium egg
1/2 cup milk
3 oz Cheddar cheese, grated
6 slices smoked ham
2 tbsp butter
First boil the rice in a pan of salted water according to package
instructions. Drain, rinse, then drain again. Meanwhile, pour boiling
water over the frozen peas, then drain. Next, beat the egg with the milk.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. To assemble the dish, mix the rice with the
peas in a bowl, then spoon half of the rice into a deep-sided baking
dish. Sprinkle over half of the cheese, then cover this with 3 slices of
ham. Repeat the layers, finishing with the ham, then pour over the
egg and milk mixture. Dot the butter over the top, then bake for
about 30 mins. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
