What do you do with leftover rice? Obviously, you make the best leftover rice pudding! This recipe reminds me of old fashion rice pudding Grandmas' are known for.
As a kid, I thought it was weird that my dad would order rice pudding for dessert.
Why would you go out to eat, have an amazing selection of desserts to choose from, and order rice pudding? Made no sense to me as a kid.
As I got older and became a bit more open-minded, I started to give more things a try. My first taste of rice pudding was awful... lol
It was mushy, full of raisins, and clumpy. I was turned off for years.
When Anthony started playing around with this recipe, I was not at all convinced that it would taste good.
Turns out, this was fantastic and worth sharing!
