tyler florence knows how to use up leftover rice!

Top Review by maryannatwork

This is the best recipe for using leftover rice. I've used it many, many times. Since I never know how much rice I'll have leftover I use the following proportions: for each 1 cup of cooked rice, I use 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons butter. Probably 2 tablespoons of raisins; I often leave them out. The rest is sort of random. I once used 3/4 cup of grated Ghirardeli chocolate with 4 cups of rice and it was a disaster. 1/2 cup would have been more than enough. As you can tell this is a fun recipe to play with.
