Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is one comfort food that can’t always be counted on. You see, some places make really crummy rice pudding. Kozy Shack is an ok substitute. Your best bet is to cross your fingers that you live in some nice town with a run-down Greek diner/deli in your midst. Order the rice pudding there. I bet it will be good.

Now, this one, it will do barring some nice Greek aunt or deli in your midst. Use whole milk for goodness sake…or evaporated. Or half and half. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top when you are done.  It is baked, so a bit different than your usual rice pudding recipes.

â…“ cup uncooked rice
4 cups milk, scalded
¼ teaspoon salt
¼  cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter

Combine all ingredients in a flat baking dish(6½ x 10½ x 1¾ inches) and place in a slow oven (300° F.) and bake for 1½ hours or until rice is perfectly tender and pudding is thick and creamy, not dry. Stir every 15 minutes with a fork, carefully turning under the brown top and scraping the edges down. Serve hot or cold. 5 servings. The Modern Family Cookbook
