This recipe is very similar to the rice pudding with which my husband grew up. Our recipe uses 1 tsp. of vanilla rather than the nutmeg. We eat it as a main dish.

Next time I'll make more of the custard because that's how I like it. I used a mixture of cinnamon and fresh ground nutmeg. A note regarding comments about nutmeg being toxic... nutmeg is only toxic if you consume over 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg all at once. Recipes that use nutmeg don't typically use an amount that would actually be toxic. This recipe is safe and definitely a good jumping off point to adjust to your tastes.

I am trying this recipe with short grain rice, (also known as sushi rice). I added 1/2 cup brown sugar for the sugar. My children does not like the taste of nutmeg so I subsituted this flavor with a sprinkle half of the tray of cinnamon. I also added a couple drops of vanilla for an extra flavor. Let's see how it taste.

Easy, delicious, comfort food desert. A great way to use up leftover rice from take-out. I added cinnamon and more rice, otherwise followed recipe. Will definitely make this again!

I made a double custard because I like it creamier but all in all is a great rice pudding !

I’m not sure what all the naysayers are talking about. We all loved it. Perhaps they are looking for a creamy rice pudding and this is more akin to custard. This was perfect for us as my older son wanted custard and I wanted rice pudding. It was amazing. We also made a batch with almond milk for one of my younger children. It’s a tad different but very good.

Awful. Way too much nutmeg, which can be toxic.
