For as long as I can remember, Minute® Rice has been a staple in my pantry. On a busy night, I can make delicious fluffy white rice in just 5 minutes or Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice in just 10 minutes. This rice has similar nutritional values as regular long cooking brown rice, but is ready in just 10 minutes, – ¼ the time. It’s all about getting good food on the table fast! My post and recipe are sponsored by Minute® Rice, all opinions are my own.

I will just mix and match a protein, a vegetable or salad have a variety of meals to carry us through the entire week. I don’t know of anyone who gets tired of eating rice. And leftover rice is great to add to a soup, salad or casserole. Did you know that both Minute Brown and White Rice are gluten free?

Last week, I attended an event sponsored by Minute® Rice . We got to sample some delicious recipes that were a little out of the ordinary including Banana Bread, and a Chicken Brussel Sprout Bake.

I came home inspired to try something completely different for my upcoming holiday party and tested my recipe on my family. Do you like rice pudding? Try my recipe — (it was a huge hit!)

Salted Caramel Apple Rice Pudding with Raisins

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 eggs at room temperature

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place a large glass baking dish in the oven with the butter in the bottom and allow it to melt while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Whisk together the eggs and vanilla and set aside.

In a sauce pan heat the milk until just before it begins to boil.  It will start to bubble at sides.

Gradually stir the hot milk into the egg and vanilla mixture.  Pour the egg and milk mixture over the rice, apples, and raisins.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and tip the dish to coat the dish.  Pour the rice mixture into the baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

Here I am at  the party sponsored by Minute® Rice with some of my favorite Southern California bloggers.Minute Rice Ugly Christmas Sweater party

 I’m a shortie, and was hidden in the back. Here is a better look at my Ugly Christmas Sweater!

I just tried their newest product, Minute® Multi-Grain Medley which is a blend of four different gluten-free, 100% whole grains including long grain brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice and quinoa. It comes in already portioned bags which can be prepared in only 10 minutes. It had a rich, nutty flavor that really complements a meal. Try it with a little olive oil and sea salt, yum!

I love foods that are “out of the ordinary”! 🙂 My mom always fed us sweet rice for breakfast. Warm rice with milk and sugar. It was good. This recipe looks fantastic! (Last night, I attended a party with cilantro cole slaw.. out of the ordinary, but awesome.)
