Southern-style Honey Rice

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

I believe this recipe originally came from Southern Living Magazine. This smells so wonderful when you stir it. I leave out the peanuts (personal preference), but you may enjoy them. Note: prep time does not include time to cook the rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gently stir together rice and peanuts; set aside and keep warm.
  2. Put butter and honey in a heavy saucepan, cook over low heat just until butter has melted.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon and ginger, beating out any lumps.
  4. Pour over rice, and mix together thoroughly.
  5. Serve hot.

This one wasn't a hit in our house. I think hubby just couldn't get past the idea of sweet rice. Also, I used buckwheat honey which has quite a strong flavor so maybe if I would've used a lighter honey, we would've enjoyed it more. Thanks for something new to try, though.

Yummy and great for the kiddos. (The adults tend to find it a bit boring.) This is quite similar to a breakfast I used to eat when I was younger. We'd raisins instead of peanuts and float the stuff in milk.
