"Excellent easy recipe! I used Success rice. Added lots of cinnamon and raisins! Way more than 4-6 servings. Used up almost all the egg nog! Will make again."

"Lovely, easy, holiday version of a classic-not too sweet. I used basmati rice because it was on hand, but next time I'll use Arborio to get a softer pudding. Used plumped dried cranberries instead of candied cherries, which I thought would make it too sweet."

"Eggnog rice pudding Yum! Although it's not as pretty, we prefer it without the candied fruit. I need to go make some!"

"Mmm! This eggnog/rice pudding recipe was easy and delicious. I tried a few variations:

cooked basmati rice in jasmine tea; when assembling the pudding, I added a pinch of nutmeg, 1/2t. cinnamon, golden raisins and orange zest. Love this website. Very addictive!"
