Rustic Rice Pudding: With Leftover Rice

Updated: Jan 23, 2022

Rustic Rice Pudding

I have fond memories eating rice pudding when I was growing up. My dad loved it and my mom made it frequently during the winter months. Something that I looked forward to after we went sledding or ice fishing. Topped with nuts, raisins and all the wintry spices to warm your bones. Whenever my mom made a meal with rice, she always made extra for this special treat. Being a mom, I keep this tradition alive every winter for my kids. Make it with any left over white rice, then add all the different toppings you have on hand, can turn this into a creamy, comforting, delicious and nutritious dessert or treat.


2 cups of cooked white rice

2 cups of whole milk

3 Tablespoons of sugar

1/8 teaspoon of salt

Optional toppings: cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, (any dried fruit), pecans or walnuts.


In a large saucepan, combine the rice, milk, sugar and salt and cook on low, uncovered until thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat, serve warm in 4-6 small pop-over dishes or large bowl and serve. Add toppings as desired.
