If Life gives you Rice make Rice Pudding

After I order Chinese food I always have a boat load of left over white rice.  My son Samuel loves rice pudding so the next day I always make him this creamy yummy treat!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of cooked white rice
  • 4 cups of whole milk
  • 1 cup of half and half
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp of butter

Directions:

In a saucepan on medium high heat combine your equal amounts of rice and milk and the sugar. Boil this till it thickens. This will take about 25-30 minutes.

The milk will get really frothy. Latte or Cappuccino anyone?

Now beat your eggs into your half and half and slowly temper the custard into your rice while stirring constantly. Why? Cause we don't want chunks of scrambled eggs in our rice pudding ;) Stir for two minutes and take your pudding off the heat.

Now we add the cinnamon, butter and vanilla. Stir to combine and enjoy!
