This is a "Land o'Lakes" recipe. It is a very delicious rice pudding, and would be sublime topped with a strawberry, blueberry or rasberry sauce. It is very simple and very homey, quite the comfort food. I am sure the meringue can be left off quite easily if you are not a meringue lover.

This is delicious and tastes just like my mom used to make, except without the meringue, which is a nice touch. My only addition is a handful of raisins.

This was actually a lot of fun to make. I used white short-grained rice, which was a mistake because the rice got mushy. I think it would work better if I undercooked the rice. The flavor was pretty good, but a little too eggy for me. The meringue was really yummy-I never would have thought of that, but it tasted great.
