Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine the milk, rice, raisins, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Whisk eggs, vanilla and nutmeg in a 1-quart casserole dish. Slowly stir in hot rice mixture; mix well.
Place casserole dish into a larger roasting pan; Pour 1 inch of very hot tap water into pan, up side of casserole. Be careful not to let any water spill into the rice pudding.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top of the pudding is lightly browned around the edges and the center is set when lightly touched.
Allow to cool and garnish with almonds, mint leaves and whipped topping, if using.
If desired, you can omit the raisins in this dish. If you do, make sure to decrease the milk to only 2 1/2 cups and to increase the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup.
If you’re not a fan of nutmeg, feel free to sub out the nutmeg for cinnamon.
We love rice pudding because of its vast versatility. You can use a wide variety of added ingredients to make it your own and you can cook it on the stove, in the oven and even, in the microwave! This traditional recipe made in the oven gets you away from the stove, while still providing the same flavors you remember from grandma’s recipe.
If you don’t have a casserole dish on-hand and you’re short on time, try our Easy Rice Pudding and work your way up to the recipe from scratch.
Our Minute® Instant White Rice works wonders here, as it perfectly absorbs the warm milk infused with sugar, vanilla and raisins with just a pinch of salt.
