For some reason, repurposing our leftovers into something edible makes me giddy and a bit well, randy. I absolutely love the feeling of using up our left over rice into this amazing easy rice pudding. Plus, I am on a food prep kick ever since starting the 30 Day Eat At Home Challenge. Even if you don’t have leftovers, this rice pudding is so easy and fast, it feels like it must be a joke.
It’s no joke.
Easy Rice Pudding
3 cups of cooked white rice (make fresh or use leftover rice)
1 -2 cups milk
1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 tsp cinnamon
Put rice in a pot (or same pot you just cooked it in), pour milk in just to cover the rice.
Bring this to boil.
Once boiling add eggs, sugar, raisins, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Let boil for 3 minutes.
Cover and remove from heat.
Let stand 20 minutes.
I find this recipe to be a bit weird because not many rice pudding recipes require eggs, plus it is super quick to make! I also find it weird because it brings me so much damn joy in using left overs. ROWR.
