Rice Pudding a la Lee Cumba

this is my friend Lee's fabulous rice pudding. she served it at all of our bridge parties and everyone loved it!!

  • 1 Gallon Whole milk
  • 2 cups of rice( do not use minute rice)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Bag of miniature marshmallows

Take 2 cups milk out of the galloon and add the 2 eggs, stir and set aside. In a large pot add rest of the milk, rice,sugar and vanilla. Cook on low untill the rice is soft( about 1 1/2 hours). when it starts to resemble a pudding texture, add 1/2 bag of marshmallows and slowly add the milk and egg mixture. Cook another 10-15 minutes - pour rest of marshmallows into your bowl and pour the pudding over top. DO NOT STIR. You may serve this hot or cold. It makes a large amount, but does not seem as good if you cut it in half. Can keep warm on low in a crockpot to serve. Great for pot lucks or large get-togethers!!
