Preheat oven to 375. Lightly butter a 13x9 inch baking dish (or 2 qt. casserole). In hot butter, saute onion until golden. Remove from heat, stir in hot rice, sour cream, cottage cheese, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Toss lightly with a fork to mix well.

Personal Notes:
This freezes very well. If it seems too dry, add a bit more sour cream or milk.
