Foodie Friday: Porkkanalaatikko
Published: February 23, 2019
Happy Foodie Friday! This week's recipe is a favorite, especially around Christmas, Porkkanalaatikko!
5-6 medium-sized carrots
1-1/2 cups brown rice, cooked
2 cups milk or cream
1 tbsp dark brown sugar or molasses
1 tsp salt
3 – 4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup bread or cracker crumbs
1 tsp nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Peel and finely shred the carrots into a large mixing bowl.
Add the cooked rice, milk, eggs, salt, brown sugar, and optional nutmeg, stirring until ingredients are mixed evenly.
Pour the carrot mixture into a greased casserole dish.
Melt the butter and combine it with the bread or cracker crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the carrot mixture.
Optional: Once the casserole is fully prepped to go into the oven, you can decorate the dish by making shallow, patterned indentations with the tip of a spoon.
Bake for about 45 minutes, until crumbs are golden brown or until no liquid drains from the casserole when the edge is pulled away from the side.
