    I took this to a sorority breakfast and got many likes. Easy to make and delicious.

    I usually save leftover rice to eat as breakfast cereal with cinnamon, sugar and milk. This recipe is sort of a cross between that and rice pudding. I added a sprinkling of cinnamon which I felt it lacked. The topping is wonderful. The kids went crazy over it. The canned peaches were mushy, too sweet and didn't really add to the recipe. I'll try it again when I have fresh peaches. Yes, there is a lot of fat and sugar, but overall it is a very tasty, filling breakfast dish. An egg or 2 could probably have been beaten in with the cream to add some protein and make it more custard like.

    This is really a good, hearty breakfast. Don't let the fat scare you--I substituted FF half-n-half for the heavy cream with no problem. You could leave off the topping entirely, since that's where most of the fat comes from. I think I just sprinkled mine with cinnamon & sugar.

    This is a nice alternative to an egg-based breakfast casserole. My non-egg eaters love this!
