If you love Hawaiian pizza with the winning combination of pineapples and ham, I am sure you will love this sunny Hawaiian baked rice as well. The sweetness of the pineapples balance the savoury creamy mushroom soup (straight from the can) sauce, ham and cheese.

If you have a small party to feed, this will be a great recipe to try out as it’s filling and noob proof. Bake this in any oven-safe cookware, or disposable aluminium party tray if you don’t feel like washing up later.

      the campbell soup and cheese is supposed to flavour the rice. Next time, can try seasoning the rice with salt, pepper, campbell soup first, before spreading on the baking tray and topping with cheese. You may prefer it this way as the campbell soup will be more evenly distributed.

    Umm, what if I want to cook for 1 person servings? Do you have any idea what will the recipe be? o.o

      Cook enough rice for one person, you can eyeball the pineapple and ham to be added to the rice, and as for the cheese and mushroom sauce – one layer each.

    Hi wiffy,

    Sorry i don’t really understand part 2 & 3 after reading a few times.

    Can you explain to me ?
    2. In a heated wok or saucepan, melt the butter. Add the washed rice, salt and black pepper to taste. Stir well. ( need to add in water?? Do you mean add the washed uncooked rice after draining out from the water, add in salt & pepper. How much salt & pepper do i need to put if for serving of 2 ppl? )

    3. Wait for the rice mixture to cool, then transfer to a rice cooker. Add the garlic cloves. Add water to cook rice (I use slightly more than 1 1/2 cups of water – adjust the water amount according to your cooker).

    For part 3,
    Wait for the rice mixture to cool (does it mean we need to boil part 2? )

    If without adding olive oil or butter, will it be not as tasty ?

    Thank you for ur help. =)

      Hi there,
      2. Do not need to add water, you are stir-frying uncooked, washed (and drained) rice for fragrance only. Just add a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
      3. Certain rice cookers (the older types) operate via heat sensor – hence it will think that the rice is already cooked since they have been fried in the wok prior to this. that’s the reason for waiting for the rice mixture to cool.
      Add a bit of butter, it will make the rice more aromatic.
      Sorry for the confusion, will reword the recipe to make it clearer when I have time.
