Using clean hands, mix together baking mix, cheese and ground beef in a large
bowl. Mold pieces of this mixture into various sizes/shapes. Place the pieces so
they they don't touch in an ungreased baking pan.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until brown, firmly and slightly crusty.
While the meat cooks, place water, rice, salt and butter into a large saucepan.
Heat on high until water begins to come to a boil. Stir, turn heat to low and cover
pan. Simmer without lifting the cover for 14 minutes.
Remove saucepan from the stove and carefully, lift off cover. Break apart or
fluff the rice with a fork and set pan aside.
When meat is done, carefully transfer to paper towels to drain.
Spoon rice and meat into the now empty pan, leaving some meat partially uncovered.
