Do you ever cook way too much rice for dinner? Do you hate leftovers but hate to waste the food?
This is the perfect recipe to use that leftover rice and give it a totally different spin. It won’t just be dinner leftovers… it’s dessert! Or even breakfast!
- 2 cups of cooked rice
- 3 cups of milk
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/12 tsp cinnamon
- Optional raisins-- we have an avid raisin hater at our house so no raisins here.
- Mix the rice, milk, sugar and salt in a sauce pan on medium heat and stir constantly until thickened. Lower heat and add cinnamon and raisins (if you're using them). Cook and stir for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. If you'd like, sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
- Serve warm or cold.
- We prefer warm and we like to eat it for breakfast.
