Family Thanksgiving Rice
There has been a rice recipe in my family for years that is always the biggest hit at the Thanksgiving table. Not the turkey, not the cranberry sauce, the rice is the biggest hit.The rice is actually such a big of a hit that multiple family members request that my mother or grandmother would cook them additional trays to take home with them. You would think this was such a complicated recipe but it’s really not. All it is, is white rice, mozzarella cheese, hard boiled eggs, chicken liver, sausage, and the salt and pepper. It just takes a little while to make which is why we don’t eat it all year round. Great dishes you’ll love
There is no “official recipe” since this is a family recipe, so there is no official measurements on the ingredients here. But I am confident that I can give you the skills and tools you need in order to make this dish successfully. Just use your discretion in regards to the measurements and you’ll find what tastes the best.
The first thing you want to do is boil your white rice. You’ll know the white rice is done when each grain is soft but still firm. You want the crunch to be gone from the rice completely. While the rice is cooking, you want to put a little bit of oil in a pain and brown some sausage and chicken liver. Make sure you cook the sausage and liver all the way through but you don’t want to cook them too far. You want them to be moist and tender when they are finished browning. While the rice, liver, and sausage are being prepared, slice some hard-boiled eggs that you had made before you started cooking. You want the thickness of the slices to be about ¼ of an inch to ⅜ of an inch. The last ingredient to prepare would be the mozzarella cheese. You want to use store brand mozzarella here, fresh mozzarella is too wet and can make the rice very soggy. Cut the mozzarella into cubes and throw the cubes into a bowl. Great bowel dishes
At this point you should have a tray of white rice, browned chicken livers and sausage, sliced hard-boiled eggs, and cubed mozzarella cheese. Combine all of ingredients in one large tray and mix them around. Add salt and pepper and make sure everything is evenly spread around the rice. Take the tray and put it in the oven at 375 degrees until the top of the rice comes to a crisp.
Once you see the top crispy, take the rice out and you’ll have a delicious meal that’s ready to be eaten. Your family will fall in love with the crispy outside and the moist flavorful inside. You’ll quickly understand why this is such an amazing Thanksgiving dish!
