As a professional chef and graduate of NECI, I find this recipe brings back memories of what my grandmother made when I was young. This is an excellent recipe and should be tried by everyone. Just a note to those of you who had a problem with this recipe, bear in mid all recipes need adjustment depending on your oven, altitude above sea level, your individual taste, etc. I am sure with a little tweeking, this rice pudding would turn out 100% all the time.


Ok, having tried others on this site with disasterous results, this one shows the most promise!! Use 2c milk, and 1 1/4 c of COOKED rice, all else as is in the recipe. Finally, no rice soup and a tasty dessert.


This is a great use for leftover rice from chinease take out since this recipe calls for already cooked rice...many do not. I used a cinnamin spice blend (which I believe has nutmeg in it) and I used more than recipe called for (I LOVE cinnamin). I also added more rice since many reviewers stated it was too much like soup. Since I am about 1800 feet above sea level and have a 20+ year old wall oven, I usually have to adjust my baking times, so I baked this a full hour. I also used another reviewers hint and tested for "doneness" with a knife inserted in the middle. The recipe turned out yummy, and I will keep it on hand for future rice leftovers. I would be more apt to call it a rice pudding casserole...if you are thinking of pudding consistency, it isn't like that, and you will be disappointed. It seems to have more of a custard consistency when cooked completely through. If you are hesitant to try this based on other reviews, please keep in mind that every recipe, even recipes from world famous chefs, need to be adjusted for personal taste. Would I give him a bad review simply because his dish was too spicy, no way! I overlook poor ratings that are based on personal preference (such as "too bland, too sweet, too spicy, too moist, too dry".
