Even if it’s summer, we love this dish made with brown rice!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 g diced ham
  • 100 g sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 red capsicum, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 80 g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 handful wholegrain breadcrumbs, plus some more for coating


  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees.
  2. Cook the brown rice in the water and some salt. (I pressure cooked it for 30 minutes in the All-in-One Cooker. If you cook it on the stove it will take slightly longer).
  3. In a pan slightly oiled, gently fry the mushrooms, capsicum and the ham.
  4. When the rice is cooked, mix it with the eggs and 40 grams of Parmesan cheese. (Leave the rest of the Parmesan cheese for later).
  5. Grease an oven casserole dish with olive oil and give it a coating of breadcrumbs.
  6. Pour half of the rice mixture into the dish. Press it down with your hands.
  7. On top of the rice place the mushrooms/ham mix, and the shredded cheese.
  8. Cover with the remaining rice.
  9. Sprinkle the top with the breadcrumbs and the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  10. Bake in hot oven for around 30 minutes. Enjoy!

  • I will make this without the ham for a vegetarian deal. Thanks for this. Love brown rice.


  • And now for something completely different. I LOVE THIS IDEA. I cook my brown rice on top of the stove by the absorption method. It takes about 20 minutes tops.


  • Thank you for the hint of cooking brown rice quicker. Will try that and this meal looks a great one.


  • I cook up brown rice. Stir in some spinach, cheese and eggs. Season, put in oven tray, top with cheese. Bake till browned. Yummo!


  • Mmm, this looks really good! I’ll have to try it without the meat so I can enjoy it as well as my kids. Thanks for sharing!


  • Sure! Put other ingredients and let me know how it went!!


  • Love the look of this and thinking maybe dinner for tonight but with something else in the middle as do not want to go shopping.


  • Oh wow I love the look of this. I can’t wait to give it a try.


  • I’m glad you like it! :-)


  • great way to use up the Christmas ham – your recipes are so family friendly


  • Nice to hear!!


  • clever use of ingredients we all have at home


  • a cleaver idea to use it instead of a pastry!


  • What a unique recipe. Will be interested to try this out some time.

    • We have some leftover brown rice from last night’s dinner so I will be making this for lunch!


  • i have never made something like this before. i thought it was a rice bake but it is cake. that sounds really cool :) i would never have thought of this recipe. Does the breadcrumb topping go hard and crunchy or go more cake like?

    • The topping goes quite crunchy. If you prefer you could cover the top with aluminium foil during the last ten minutes.
