This recipe was a staple in my house as a child and as a wife. It is a great comfort food. You can cook this in the crock pot and add the bacon and cheese at the end. Personally I like to cook the ground beef first and then bake in the oven for 1-1/2 hour or until the rice is done. If I am using brown rice I also leave in the liquid from the can of corn. I always add the bacon and cheese last. We really don't care for the cheese on it. but that is just personal preference. I hope you will try this and enjoy it.
