The standard recipe for Who Pudding from the Dr. Seuss website can be a disappointment for kids because, after making it, you have to let it sit in the fridge for 8 hours to overnight. This quicker rice pudding is just as yummy. Make it over the winter vacation while watching or reading "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas ".
1/2 cup long grain white rice or one cup cooked leftover rice
1 1/4 cup water (not needed if using pre-cooked rice)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste
Red and green M&Ms ( or other colourful Christmas candy)
Boil the rice and water in a saucepan.
Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes after it comes to a boil.
Whisk the egg in a bowl, then add the milk and sugar.
Pour over the rice.
Bring to a boil again, then reduce heat and cook at low heat for about 30 minutes stirring often.
Stir in the vanilla. Add cinnamon if desired.
You can serve it warm, room temp or cold.
Garnish with M&Ms or other red and green candy.
