Baked Custard Rice Pudding

Our dietitians' favourite

This recipe is taken from the 2014 Milk Calendar. "This was always a favourite in our home. My mum found this to be an easy pudding to prepare, especially as we had our own eggs and milk. It was a good way to fill up tummies in a large family."
-Recipe from Tony Forrester, dairy farmer from New Glasgow, Prince-Edward-Island

Preheat oven to 325 °F (160 °C).

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and salt until blended. Whisk in milk and vanilla extract. Stir in rice and raisins. Spread in an 11 x 7-inch (28 x 18 cm) cooking dish.
