This BLT-inspired cheesy rice comes to life when fresh spinach and chopped bacon is stirred into Annie’s™ Grilled Cheese Cheesy Rice. Topping with fresh tomato, crunchy croutons and additional bacon makes this one an easy weeknight dinner win!



  1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water and butter to boiling over medium-high heat; stir in rice. Return to boiling; stir and cover. Reduce heat to low; cook 16 to 18 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in seasoning.
  2. Stir in spinach and 1/2 cup of the bacon, until spinach starts to wilt and mixture is heated through.
  3. To serve, divide into bowls; top with remaining 1/4 cup bacon, the tomato and croutons.

Recipe Tips

  1. This recipe also works with Annie’s™ White Cheddar Cheesy Rice.
  2. We like to play up the “toast” in the BLT by topping with crunchy, buttery croutons.
