This pudding is so creamy and delicious. The kids wanted rice pudding tonight, so I made them Grams recipe. I remember loving this as a kid and still do.

If you have 45 minutes, you can be enjoying this delicious comfort food too! One of the best I ever had.

  • 4After the rice has thickened, whisk swiftly the egg and milk mixture into the rice, cook 2 minutes longer.
