This is my mom’s recipe, which she called creamy steamed rice. Although many people would eat it for dessert, it was one of my favorite breakfasts when I was growing up. My family considers it a real treat.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sticks and fresh fruit, optional

Directions

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, bring water to a boil over medium-high heat; stir in rice and salt. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  2. Stir in milk and sugar. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 30-40 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; stir in butter.
  3. Serve warm or chilled. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and fruit if desired.
