Rice pudding w/leftover rice?

I often have leftover white rice..

can I make rice pudding?

all the recipes I see start with uncooked rice and cook for a long time..

I'm thinking..

Leftover rice
Milk
spices
and some old, soft fruit, (pears)..

1 egg?
pinch of salt?

Will this work?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

My Mom used to make glorified rice.

You will find many variations on the web but it is basically leftover rice, sugar, canned pineapple, whipped cream, miniature marshmallows and maraschino cherries. It is too sweet for me at this point in my life but, I enjoyed it years ago.

Eric, if you wanto make rice pudding, I believe you will need some eggs to go with the milk and sugar. Any rice pudding I have ever made or eaten was custard like. I bet there are some recipes online or do you have a Betty Crocker cookbook? I haven't made rice pudding in years, but if I find a recipe I will post it. Oops re-reading your post I see you did mention egg ;-)

My rice pudding uses leftover rice. I've used jasmine, wild rice, white rice, and brown rice. It also uses 4 eggs, milk, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It is traditional to make rice pudding for Christmas and hide an almond in the bottom. One also leaves a bowl out for Tomte on Christmas Eve (Tomte: Christmas Eve). Although, the interpretation of Tomte being a gnome is s/thing I never heard of growing up. But that was before the popularity of garden gnomes. I always want to scream "Tomte is NOT a gnome!" when I see Tomte described as a gnome...so what is a tomte? Obviously, a tomte...and my romba vacuum is a hustomten.

Guess I'll be making rice pudding tomorrow! Haven't made it in years, but now you guys have given me a hankerin'! I've always used cooked rice.

Will cook up a mess of brown rice, enough for other stuff for the rest of the week. Vanilla, cinnamon, raisins, an egg or two, some milk, yum.

House tomte, CSW? I love my Roomba too!

I bought one for my mom when I was there--she calls hers Hilda Hustomte.

You can make rice pudding with the leftover rice. You can also make fried rice with it.

You're making my head hurt. "...a hustomten." means a the house elf/brownie. You have two articles, ow, ow, ow.

Drat. Got everything out, mined the freezer, and guess what? No rice.

Grocery store trip tomorrow.
