I'm not a connoisseur of Rice Pudding, but I have a friend who is. Henry tried my Rice Pudding last weekend and kindly, said it was good. It was still crunchy, lol. I don't think Rice Pudding is supposed to be crunchy! So, he suggested trying Arborio Rice. I gave it a shot! It worked pretty well.
Now, I hear Rice Pudding is supposed to be served cold. I prefer it hot, but maybe I'm the weird one???!!! Oh well, either way, the flavor is awesome! Who knew rice, milk and sugar could taste so good?! LOL
I would suggest adding a dollop of whipped cream to the top like the pros, but I didn't have any, and didn't want to go get some just for the picture!
I hope you enjoy this Rice Pudding! And Henry.....there's more rice pudding heading your way today!!!
(Adapted from Kristy's Grandmother's recipe)
Ingredients:3 eggs, beaten
3 1/3 cups milk
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup Arborio Rice
4 Tbsp. butter
In the slow cooker liner, add the beaten eggs, milk, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla. Mix gently.
Pour the rice in as evenly as possible and give another stir.
Then add the butter.
Cook on LOW for about 3 hours. During the last hour, stir every 20 minutes or so.
After the 3 hours on low, turn the slow cooker off and let the rice pudding sit in there with the lid on for about another half hour or so.
