Loaded Baked Potato Cream of Rice

Cream of Rice has been my newest obsession!

I always thought it was some lame gluten free food… then I tried it.

I started out with this dessert cream of rice!

Then I got curious about how it would be in a savory entree & this recipe was born!

It tastes just like a loaded baked potato!

Place the COR plus seasoning & SALT in a POT & add water according to package directions. Do NOT skimp on salt guys. Itโ€™s a bland rice, it needs some flavor + garlic powder. I also used @traderjoes 21 salute seasoningโฃ 2. Cook according to package directions, stirring frequentlyโฃ 3. In a separate pan, sauteฬ your deli ham to crisp it up (pretend bacon) & sauteฬ your spinach โฃ 4. When the COR has thickened, stir in your egg whites โฃ 5. Let cook until thickened again, then stir in your cheese & add the sauteฬed ham & spinachโฃ 6. Et voila! โฃ โฃ This reheats well in the microwave too! โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธQ&A: โฃ 1. I donโ€™t have cream of rice, can I use grits?โฃ A: Yes, theyโ€™re pretty much the same thing IMO. โฃ 2. Isnโ€™t salt bad? Can I leave it out? โฃ A: You NEED salt/sodium to balance your electrolytes for one, but you also need salt to taste anything. Thus why cookie recipes always have a pinch of salt. Donโ€™t skip.
