Easy Rice Breakfast Treat

Nonei 0

"Cold rice and hot milk combine with spices and sugar to make the perfect breakfast treat! Be sure to use plain-cooked rice. This tastes pretty funny if the rice was cooked in chicken broth. Trust me, I know!"

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Spread rice onto a platter and allow to cool in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Stir together 2 cups of the rice and 1 cup milk in each of two microwave-safe bowls. Cook in microwave on high until hot but not boiling, about 5 minutes.
  3. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a sealable bag; shake to mix. Divide the mixture between the two bowls of rice; stir through.

I have never eaten this type of food before now so I don't have anything to compare it to (like the other reviewers) I love it. I did follow advice of another reviewer and used brown sugar and ...

I just made this and it's exactly what I was looking for! I bypassed the "making the rice" step as I had 2 cup cold, cooked rice in the fridge, added 1 cup milk, microwaved (stopping and stirrin...
