Baked Rice Pudding

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

2 cups of hot cooked rice (I use Uncle Ben's but minute rice is fine)

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. salt

3 eggs, slightly beaten

2 1/2 cups of milk, scalded (which means steamy hot but not boiling.  I find two minutes in the microwave works perfect)

1/2 cup raisins in cinnamon (I just sprinkle some cinnamon into my measuring cup of raisins and give it a shake)

Blend eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl.  Gradually stir in the milk (not too fast or you'll cook the eggs!)  Add the raisins in cinnamon.  Then add your hot cooked rice.  Pour into an ungreased 1 1/2 quart casserole and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Place your dish inside a slightly bigger pan.  Then pour very hot water into the pan about 1 1/2 inches deep. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 70 minutes.
