The Comfort of Custard Rice

This dish by far is one of my husband’s favorite dishes that he had as a kid.  He grew up with this dish and I have to give a shout out to my mother in law for this recipe.  Custard rice is a warm, filling, sweet dish that is perfect for any cold day that you need that extra comfort. Custard rice is basically a rice pudding that is baked with milk and eggs.  The history of this dish can be found from all around the world in many different recipes. I make this dish at least once a week and my husband is thankful and my kids continue to get the tradition.

Custard Rice

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • dash nutmeg

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Cook rice in a pot or a rice cooker.  I  absolutely love my Insta Pot and use it for rice all the time.  You can use white or brown rice.  I use brown rice for the healthier side.  After the rice has been cooked combine all the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Whisk all the ingredients together and after the ingredients have been whisked add 1 1/2 cup of your cooked rice. After the rice has been added I like to give it a stir to mix it all together and I like to sprinkle some cinnamon on top. Next grease a glass baking dish or glass bowl place in oven and bake 50 minutes. This dish should temp anywhere from 165 to 190. The hotter the temperature the firmer the custard.

Family food traditions are things that should never be forgotten. The best thing about this dish is you can take it and make it yours.  Add a little pumpkin pie spice or some Chai Tea concentrate to give it a new delicious flavor. The possibilities for a custard rice dish are endless.
