Reviews for Leftover Rice Pudding
"I was looking for a baked rice pudding and came across this recipe and I'm pleased that I did. It is wonderful, I made it exactly to the recipe the first time ( luckily I had enough frozen cooked rice in the freezer as I don't throw rice out) This time I cooked more rice last night for dinner than I needed and today I'm making double the quantity as it was such a hit the first time.Thank you very much for the recipe."
"This recipe was really great! I modified by adding two eggs, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and Cardamom to taste. I sweetened with Stevia. It scorched on the bottom a little, so next time I will use a double boiler. We usually get Chinese takeout once a week and there's always leftover rice; now I know how to use it! Thanks!"
"I am lactose intolerant , and allergic to eggs so this is a great recipe for me. I used lactose free milk and added cinnamon, nutmeg and raisins. I no longer miss one of my favorite childhood comfort foods!"
"I added butter and cinnamon and nutmeg. Thanks for the basic bones! It's awesome!!"
"Easy to make and a great use for leftover rice. I added cinnamon."
