The Thrifty BA's Rice Pudding

We have this amazing friend (THE THRIFTY BA) who  happens to have a very creative, funny blog. We love following her along as she writes about her life, finding treasures, her immense crafting creativity, her obsession with all things balls, her thrifty tips, and her fantastic recipes. She is smart and truly humorous, and never fails to make us smile or LOL.
Well this past week she posted a recipe she called her "Nana's Rice Pudding", and after I read through it I started to think that BA is also a little crazy!  This recipe requires you to CONSTANTLY STIR some ingredients for 30 minutes-I can't do anything for a full 30 minutes!  But having faith in BA's recipe's, I took on this monumental challenge, and today I made Nana's rice pudding!  Yay for me!
And now I must say that THE 45 MINUTES I SPENT MAKING THE PUDDING (including the 30 minutes of constant stirring) MAY VERY WELL BE THE SMARTEST, BEST, AND MOST DELICIOUS 45 MINUTES OF MY LIFE!

Oh, I am in love!  Amazingly decadent, this rice pudding recipe will put all others to shame.
  DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT SKIP THIS RECIPE!

  • 1 c. uncooked, long grain rice (not Minute Rice)
  • 8 c. Milk
  • 1/2 c. Butter
  • 1 c. Sugar (divided)
  • 1 c. Water
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla extract
In a large stock pot combine the uncooked rice, milk, butter 1/4 c. sugar, and water together.  Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.  Continue boiling for 30 minutes and STIR CONSTANTLY! (ugh)

Next combine the well beaten eggs, the remaining 3/4 c. sugar and the Vanilla extract.  Mix very well.
Slowly pour the egg mix into the cooked rice mix, stir until completely incorporated.  Pour into a 9 x 13 pan, sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
 
 
 The pudding can be served hot or cold -we prefer ours cold, but my parents (who are now life long devotees to The Thrifty BA's recipe), like to enjoy theirs while still hot with a little vanilla ice cream on the side-Yuuummm-O!
 Thank you Beth~delish!
