Rice and Apples

One recipe my family actually liked was rice and apples! Technically it's a breakfast dish, but we have it for dinner.

You mix 1/2 cup rice, 4 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt inside a casserole dish. You bake that in the oven at 275 for two hours, occasionally stirring to prevent sticking.

Then, you add 2-3 sliced apples. I add 3-4 apples, because the daughter loves the tiny apple bits floating inside the rice. You bake it for another hour, and that's it.

I've never had porridge, but I think this is a porridge recipe. Porridge with apples isn't so bad. To make it healthier, don't add as much sugar. Thanks to Carole Arkin, for contributing this recipe to cookbook!
