Comfort food

I found a recipe once for a rice dessert.  Technically, its called Yummy Sweet Rice, but at our house, we call it "That Rice Stuff".  If my son had one last meal, he would request this I'm sure.  Or at least it would be a part of the meal because these days, he has a hollow leg.  Anyway, I'm posting the recipe.  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures but use your imagination. Imagine rice in a baking pan with some other ingredients and you'll be set.  Hahahahaha!!!!

2 cups uncooked Minute Rice
1 egg slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Heat the oven to 350.  Prepare the rice as directed on the package.  Meanwhile, mix the egg and sugar in a large bowl until blended.  Add the milk and vanilla and mix it well.  Then stir in the rice and pour into an ungreased 1 1/2 quart dish. 
Top with the following:
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons sugar

Dot it with 2 Tablespoons of margarine cut into pieces and Bake for 20-25 minutes. 

Around our house, this counts as a breakfast food - its got protein so it keeps you full for a while.  Or at least it does in theory. And it doesn't take long to make; I got up a little bit earlier than usual and made it for breakfast today.  Anyway, this fits into several food categories:  breakfast, dessert, snack, comfort food...  whatever.
