“This was a staple in my Portuguese house growing up. Delicious on a warm summer day ice cold or on a snowy day warm off the stove! Easy to make and can even be whipped up after dinner using left over rice!”
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup instant white rice uncooked
3 tablespoons sugar more to taste
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons raisins
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine milk, rice, sugar, raisins and salt in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Beat egg and vanilla lightly in small bowl. Stir small amount of hot mixture into eggs.
Stirring constantly, slowly pour egg mixture back into hot mixture. Stirring constantly, cook on lower heat 1 minute, until thickened. (DO NOT BOIL)

"If you have left over rice from dinner, you can most certainly use that in place of instant. Options: Trade raisins for dried cranberries for a fall treat."
