Browned Butter Peach Rice Pudding

Browned Butter Peach Rice Pudding

Ingredients:

2 cups Riceland Long Grain White Rice
3 cups water
4 cups half-and-half
3 cups milk
1 cup butter
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4-6 peaches, peeled and sliced

Directions:

  1. First make the browned butter but placing the butter in a small non-reactive saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Allow the butter to melt and continue to cook, without stirring, until it slowly starts to brown.
  3. Pull the butter off when it becomes fragrant and begins to turn a medium amber color.
  4. Allow to cool while you make the rice pudding.
  5. For the pudding, combine the rice and water in a large pot.
  6. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover for 8 minutes.
  7. Add the milk and half-and-half, stir to combine, then bring to a boil again.
  8. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes, stirring frequently.
  9. With 5 minutes left, turn on the broiler in your oven.
  10. Lower the heat again to low and drizzle in the eggs while stirring the rice pudding vigorously to keep the eggs from scrambling.
  11. Remove from the heat, add the browned butter and vanilla extract.
  12. Pour into a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
  13. Place the peaches on top.
  14. Broil for 5-10 minutes until the peaches are caramelized and done to your liking.
  15. Serve warm or cold.

A quick cook’s tip: if the peaches you’re using are perfectly ripe and juicy I would suggest omitting the broiling step. The broiling is simply a great way to caramelize peaches that are a tad less ripe so that they soften slightly.
