How to Cook Rice for a Crowd (Easy Oven Method)
Cooking rice for a crowd is SO easy! For a potluck, family reunion or church party, bake it in the oven and have up to 50 servings in less than an hour.
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Place 3 quarts uncooked rice in large roasting pan (lightly sprayed with cooking spray), spread evenly. Set aside.
In a large stock-pot, combine water and salt. Bring to a rolling boil.
CAREFULLY pour boiling water over rice and stir so rice is even along the bottom.
Immediately cover tightly with aluminum foil. Make sure you have a tight seal around ALL the edges.
Place roasting pan in oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until rice is tender.
Fluff with a large wooden spoon & serve.
**Note: If you want to wait to serve, just keep in the oven at 150 degrees or so or keep warm in an electric warming pan. Add a little water if necessary to keep from drying out.
