Rice Pudding

One of our fans, Kristy, sent me her grandmother's recipe for Rice Pudding that she was hoping I could make in the slow cooker.  I tried it out last week and it needed some tweaking!  Last night, I tried again!  It tastes awesome!

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!!!

Rice Pudding
(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

Directions:
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.
Enjoy!

  1. Hi there I am new to your blog and was just wondering what you mean by slow cooker liner? Rice pudding looks good, and I like it warm with a bit of cream.

  2. The liner is just the crock...the part you put the food in.

    1. Now you can buy plastic liners, just dispose and your pot is clean!

  4. Flavor was great but I shortened the cookin time by one half hour. Made the mistake of leaving it too long in the slow cooker. Take it out as soon as it is done

  8. Is there a way to do it without the egg? Not an egg fan. Or will I not notice?
