Creamy Pineapple Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a favorite with my family and I make it often.  Be sure to make the sauce. It is so much better with the sauce over it.

Rice pudding with pineapple is a wonderful side dish for any holiday or occasion anytime.

1 cup of uncooked long grain rice, cooked (This will be 2 cups of rice when cooked. I think you could use minute rice in this recipe, too.)

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)

1 cup raisins

1 cup walnut pieces or nuts of your choice

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

In a large bowl while rice is cooking mix all the other ingredients together except butter.  Once rice is cooked mix it into your other ingredients. Spray a casserole dish and fill with rice mixture. (Can add another 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg on top if you like nutmeg.)  Cut the butter into pieces on top.  Bake in preheated 325 degree oven 55 -60 minutes.  Serve warm with rum sauce over top.  Makes about 10 to 12 servings. Keeps well for several days in refrigerator. Reheat in microwave.  I can eat this for breakfast or anytime during the day for a snack.

Rum Sauce:

1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon white corn syrup
2 tablespoons rum (could use bourbon, too.) Can add more if you want.  If you are a non-drinker you can use rum flavoring or just leave this out and add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead of one.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Combine ingredients and bring to boil on top of stove. Boil one minute. Can be reheated in microwave.  Makes about 1 1/2 cups. Recipe can be doubled. Serve over rice pudding.
