This family favorite came from my great-grandmother Ida Maria, who was born in 1887. She grew up in Dalarna, a province in Sweden, and moved to the United States when she was 16. And now we prepare this recipe every year for the holidays. I love it! It you want, serve with Lingonberries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium sized bowl, beat 4 eggs lightly, add 1 cup sugar and beat a little.
  2. Add 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.
  3. Add 1 cup cooked rice to the mixture.
  4. Add 1 can Carnation evaporated milk and stir.
  5. Pour into a 2 quart dish and add the low-fat milk.
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon on the top.
  7. Add butter (small"clicks" on top- each"click" probably 1/2 tablespoon).
  8. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours or until the pudding's top moves a little in the center if you push it gently.
  9. Enjoy!

This is a gorgeous rice pudding! I doubled the rice and used Egg Beaters for half of the eggs. It turned out wonderful! I brought a double recipe to a party, served it with lingonberry jam (bought at Ikea), and the entire thing dissappeared in no time. I am going to try this recipe with brown rice, Egg Beaters, and Splenda, and I'll leave out the butter (it really wasn't necessary). Yum!

This goes into the 10 STAR book! I love custard type rice puddings (my Norse heritage) and this is one of the best I have tried. I made it even more Scandinavian by adding cardamom along with the nutmeg. Thanks for this keeper.

Very good, those swedes sure know how to make rice pud. Goes really well with vanilla ice cream. could do with a bit less sugar.
