Salt 1 cup French Fol Epi or Comte Gruyere Cheese, shredded or slivered 2/3 cup Half and Half
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Melt butter in heavy skillet. Sauté onions in butter until soft and transparent, stirring frequently.
Cook rice in boiling salted water for five minutes. Drain rice well. Blend rice with onions, cheese, and cream. Pour into a greased shallow baking sheet.
