Here’s our take on cheddar cheese: it’s good. It’s melty, and salty and goes well with almost everything. But you take that cheddar cheese and make it crunchy and bubbly and brown? What happens in this scenario is the cheese then takes on this toasted, deeply umami flavor and becomes absolutely irresistible. The crunch, the flavor, the slight gooeyness in the middle – it’s all good.

What sets this Coconut Cardamom Rice Custard apart from its cousin variation of rice pudding is the custard. There’s a full layer of light custard flavored with the sweetness of coconut and the hint of cardamom joining with a layer of Riceland Long Grain White Rice and golden raisins (optional).

For dinner whip up a batch of these Creole Shrimp and Smoked Gouda Rice Grits. While it’s a dish fit for any fancy dinner party, your family is sure to love it on your regular dinner menu rotation as well. They deserve it, don’t you think?
This casserole would go nicely with meat, poultry and fish. The crunch is an added touch that gives some depth to this casserole.
