Milchreis aka Milk Rice

milk rice

My mother used to make this great German dish called milk rice. It’s a really simple rice pudding and it a really tasty breakfast when cold cereal isn’t going to hit the spot. I didn’t remember how she made it and it was too early in the morning to call her and ask so I did a quick search for a recipe and realized that all of the milchreis recipes took too long and didn’t use precooked rice. I had some left over rice from a stir fry we made a few days ago so I made up my own recipe. Here it is (all measurements are approximate because I was just eyeballing).



1 cup left over white rice
3/4 cup milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon


1. In a large microwavable bowl mix all of the ingredients.
2. Microwave until it starts to boil over.
3. Mix again.
4. Microwave again until it starts to boil over.
5. Let it sit for a few minutes to thicken up.
