recipe for delicious rice pudding.

While you’re waiting for me to put up today’s giveaways, have a little something to eat. Please. Here’s my go-to recipe for rice pudding: a quick, yummy meal during the holidays. Honestly my kids would be thrilled to eat this every night but vegetables have to sneak in there somewhere and ruin all the fun.

Rice Pudding
{serves 4}

3/4 c. uncooked rice
{I’ve been using brown rice this year, it’s better for you and the kids don’t even notice}

2 c. milk {divided}
1/3 c. white sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
2/3 c. raisins
{craisins are fun too}

1 T. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon

Bring 1 1/2 H20 to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 min.

In another combine 1 1/2 cooked rice, 1 1/2 c. milk, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy {15-20 min}. Stir in remaining 1/2 c. milk, beaten egg, and raisins.
Cook 2 min. more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla.

Serve and enjoy!
