YUM - I tempered the egg before I added to the rice pudding, but not sure it actually needed the egg. I think it would still have been good without it. I did cook this in a double boiler, so took quite a bit longer, but eliminates the need to stir all the time. I also didn't add the bourban, but next time I have some Southern Comfort, I'm going to add that.

I used orange zest, replaced nutmeg with five spice powder, and dark rum. Amazing flavor--will make it again.
