Nice quick easy recipe to make and a great way to use left over boiled/steamed rice. NOTE - I recently broke the dish I normally cook this rice custard in and the one I use now though the same size is deeper with a small surface area and it now takes about 55 minutes to cook through.
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup caster sugar
- 3 cups milk (I use reduced fat)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (extra)
- 1⁄2 cup raisins, I don't normally use (optional)
- Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius.
- Grease a 6 cup oven proof casserole dish.
- Place rice in casserole dish.
- Beat eggs and sugar together until thick and creamy, slowly add in milk beating continuously, add raisins (if using), then nutmeg. Pour custard over rice and give a stir.
- Sprinkle extra nutmeg on top.
- Put into oven and cook for 25 to 30 minutes (should have a firm look about it when cooked check not in the intro).
- Serve warm with a dollop of thick cream.
Made this for dinner last night and was so pleased at how easy it went together, think I overcooked it (was worried about it being firm) as it was a little dry, but that was my fault and didn't change the taste. I did not use the raisens as I don't care for them, did top with whipped cream. Both DH and I enjoyed it very much. Made for the photo forum - Comfort foods.
We loved this. Great flavor and easy to make. Definitely a keeper!
I made this last night for dinner. It was quick and easy to make and took around 40 minutes to bake in an 8 in by 8in square dish. I used cranberries instead of the raisins-they looked so pretty when the dish was served. This was just nicely sweet, but all four of us agreed it had way to much rice in it compared to custard-I would halve the amount of cooked rice next time.
