Standing at the stove stirring something for a half an hour or more does not seem like fun to me.
I do it to make Lemon Risotto and yeah, it is really worth it, it’s delicious and I haven’t figure out an easier way other than to have my daughter do the stirring which she often does, what a sweetie.
If I can find a way to avoid standing and stirring I will.
I love rice pudding and have used my moms recipe for years. I’ve altered it to even make Pumpkin Rice Pudding last year and it was a huge hit! Baking it seemed like a good idea, and oh yes, it was a VERY good idea in deed. You see, I love rice pudding almost as much as I like custard. I remember coming home from school and my mom would have brown crocks full of custard with nutmeg sprinkled over the tops, that is really my favorite dessert of all time. This baked rice pudding is a combination of the two. The first bite I took had me and I couldn’t stop eating it. It’s so rich and thick, I had to stop myself from eating it all before I took photos. I baked the rice pudding in a Reynolds Oven Bag, you know that type you put a turkey in for Thanksgiving.

This recipe baked the rice pudding deliciously and creamy without drying the rice out, it’s very thick custard texture is very different from the creamy deli style rice pudding. I will be making this recipe again and again and the best part is I don’t have to stand at the stove stirring it!
