This was looking like 4 stars until I added the egg. It was really thick and creamy in the pot...and then I added the egg, following recipe to "temper" the egg so it didn't cook solid in the pudding. But I added it and suddenly the pudding was a lot less creamy. Taste was very good - maybe next time I'll make it without the egg?

This is a real winner of a rice pudding recipe. I loved it. It is really creamy and stays that way the next day. I did have a problem with my mixture sticking/burning slightly in my pan, so I changed pans midway, but that was my fault! I can't decide if I might like a pinch more sugar in the recipe (sweet tooth). Anyway, I'll be making again. Roxygirl in Colo.
