9 cups broth or water
4 cups raw rice
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup hot broth
1 cup milk
3 large egg yolks
1 medium lemon -- juice only
1/2 pound parmesan cheese -- grated

Preparation / Directions:

Put the broth (or water) into a large pot and bring it to a boil. Add the rice, and stir with fork. Cover, and cook until the grains are separate and soft, (about15 min.). In another pot, melt butter. Add flour and stir in well. Slowly add hot broth and milk, and cook until sauce thickens, stirring constantly to prevent lumping or burning. Remove from the heat. Beat egg yolks with lemon juice and add to sauce, slowly, stirring constantly. Return sauce to heat, continuing to stir until thickened. Remove from heat, add butter and 1/2 the cheese. Pack rice into a mold. Turn out on a platter. Pour sauce over rice. Sprinkle remaining cheese over it. Serve hot.
