"This rice pilaf is not only good to serve alongside your everyday meal but it is also company worthy. Lemony, cheesy sauce poured over pilaf; making the rice creamy will entice any appetite."
Place 4 1/2 cups of chicken stock into a large pot and bring to a boil.
Add rice and stir with a fork. Cover and cook until fluffy and soft, about 15 minutes.
While rice cooks, heat remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth with the milk.
Melt half a stick of butter in a saucepan, add flour, and blend well. Slowly add hot broth and milk. Cook over low heat until sauce thickens, stirring constantly to prevent lumping or burning. Remove from heat.
Beat egg yolks with lemon juice and slowly add the sauce, stirring constantly. Return to the heat, and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and add half the grated cheese.
In a small saucepan, melt remaining 1/2 stick of butter until lightly browned. Pour over rice. Pack rice in a 6-inch mold and turn onto a platter.
Pour hot sauce over rice. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Serve hot.

I have made this rice many times and the sauce is so good! I had it with Lemon Baked Chicken most recently and it was super yummy! Loved it with Stuffed Scallops and Fried Pork Chops too. It goes great with just about any meal.
Oh yum!! We thoroughly enjoyed this rice. I cut the servings down as it is only the two of us and did not put it in a mold. Lovely light lemon flavour! Can not get the Kefalotiri cheese here so used Grana Pandano. Will be serving this with lamb next time! Thank you for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
