Gram Opals Rice Pudding

Comment on this recipe

This recipe has been made in my Norwegian family for many past generations. About 20 years ago it took me a lot of coaxing and patience to get my grandmother to sit down with me and get the quantities in writing, so I could duplicate it.

Ingredients

1 cup rice
3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Cook the rice, water and salt until the rice is very tender, almost mushy. May need to add more water. Use a very low heat. Add the milk and heat for 1 minute. Mix remaining ingredients and add to the rice/milk mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. For company, pour into serving bowl and garnish with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
