    Bec's Note:

    My dad always makes this for the Holidays and we all love it! I have never made it myself for fear of doing something wrong- it may take a few tries to get it perfect (I wonder how long it took my dad...) Use whole milk for this one- It makes the rice nice and thick! Mmmm...I can't wait until the Holidays are here again!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 quarts whole milk
    • 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup cream (Half & Half)
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 3 tablespoons flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt


    1. 1
      Heat the milk to boiling point.
    2. 2
      Cook the rice in boiling water until almost done, then drain it.
    3. 3
      Add the rice to the hot milk- bring the milk to almost a boil. When the rice is fully cooked, add step #4.
    4. 4
      Beat 1 egg and 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt, 3 tbsp flour, and 1/2 cup Half and Half cream- mix well.
    5. 5
      Cook at a slow boil until the rice is well suspended, and stays at the surface when the milk is boiling.
    6. 6
      Cool, and serve. I like it best when refrigerated, but some like it warm. Sprinkling cinnamon on top is always good.

      Our family is 100% Norwegian & my grandma used to make this whenever we would come over. We called it rice mush. Brings back sooooo many memories. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

      A lob of butter in the middle and cinnamon and suggar sprinkled over is the usual way to eat it hot. The leftovers are used to make rice cream - just mix the leftovers with whipped cream and serve with a cold berry sauce - eg. strawberry or raspberry or a mix with blueberries. Sauce is made by taking the juice of the berries (clear/strained) and adding sugar and boiling until it thickens.
