1/2 pint rice

1/2 pound cheese

1/2 pint milk

2 tablespoonfuls butter

2 tablespoonfuls flour

1/2 teaspoonful salt

1 saltspoonful pepper

Wash the rice through several cold waters, boil it in plenty of water for twenty minutes and drain. Rub together the butter and flour, add the milk, stir until boiling, then add the salt and pepper.

Grate or chop the cheese, stir it into the sauce. Put a layer of rice in the bottom of a baking-dish, then a layer of sauce, then another layer of rice, and so continue until you have used all ingredients. Dust the top thickly with bread-crumbs and bake in a quick oven twenty minutes. Serve in the dish in which it is baked.
