Mama's "Minute" Rice Pudding

Susan Feliciano


This recipe is old, circa 1950's. But it was new when my mother first found it on the Minute Rice box. Minute Rice was new at that time. This one is egg-less, although if you like eggs, you can beat 2 egg yolks well with the milk before combining the ingredients. The egg whites could be made into a meringue topping. But my mother was simple in her cooking, not much time for frills, as she was busy bringing up 3 very active children.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
