Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Bring the rice, water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. While the rice is cooking, cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings in the pan. Reduce heat to medium. Drain the bacon on a plate lined with paper towels; crumble the bacon once cooled enough to handle.
  4. Cook and stir the onions in the reserved bacon drippings until translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the crumbled bacon, tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce; bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Spoon the cooked rice into the prepared baking dish and stir the tomato-bacon mixture into the rice until evenly combined.
  5. Cover the dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

This was an easy 5 stars with a few adjustments. I added a can of diced tomatoes to go with all that tomato flavor. It seemed like it was really missing something as far as herbs or spices so I also added Cajun seasoning. Since I scaled it down, instead of fractioning a dash of hot sauce, I used red pepper flakes. Will definitely make this again!

Its a good recipe but I like dishes with a bit more kick. I made it a second time with a dash of ground red pepper and a handful of shakes of extra hot hot sauce over the pan. Kicks it up nicely.
