My aunt once shared her rice pudding recipe with us and we love it...wonderful for the athlete who needs to carbo-load. I usually double it.
Bring to boil in a large pot...
1/2 gallon milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup rice
Turn on low to simmer and cook for 2 hours stirring every 15 min or so. Check to see that rice is fully cooked...pudding should be thickened.
Remove from heat and add 2 eggs tempered with a little milk (whisk the eggs with the milk) and 1 Tbsp vanilla. Cool a bit and serve. You can add a little cinnamon if you like as well.
