 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Long grain rice
    4       c            Milk, whole
    3       lg           Eggs
      2/3   c            Sugar
    2       ts           Vanilla
    2       tb           Butter or margarine, melted
      1/4   ts           Salt to taste
                         Cinnamon or nutmeg
   Butter a 11 x 8 x 3-inch casserole or pan (the
   dish/pan size is important, don't use a larger pan or
   your custard layer will be too shallow); set aside.
   In the top of a double boiler, combine the rice and 1
   cup of the milk. Cover and cook over simmering water
   until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Pour into
   prepared pan.
   Preheat oven to 375-degrees.
   In a mixer bowl, lightly beat the eggs until frothy.
   Add the sugar, vanilla, butter, salt and remaining
   milk and mix well. Pour over the rice and sprinkle
   cinnamon liberally over the top; DO NOT stir in.
   Place dish in a pan of hot water (about 1/2 way up the
   sides of the dish). Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until
   the pudding is slightly puffy and is firm on top.
   Remove from the hot water and cool on a rack.
   Serve at room temperature or chilled (mine never lasts
   that long, I eat it HOT! :) From: Linda Magee
