I used whatever rice I had on hand.
I added a bit of flavor with some garlic powder.
I didn't buy any fancy cheese. I just used what I had on hand in the fridge. Although I would definitely try some fancier cheese now that I know it works well. Maybe something smokey.
Nice consistency when freshly cooked. I might suggest not using quite as much cheese, but that is all.
Served it up with some ham and roasted veggies.
I really wanted to try this because I love cheesy rice, but most packaged products cannot be trusted to be gluten free. So when life gives you lemons . . . you make cheesy rice!
