All you really need is rice, milk and sugar for rice pudding.  I've seen lots of recipes where people add eggs or butter because they are all looking to make it more creamy.  I don't like eggs in my rice pudding because of the "eggy smell".   I found this particular recipe makes a perfect rice pudding and it is extremely easy.

1/2 cup Arborio rice (Short white Italian rice is good too)
4 cups whole milk (1 lt.)
1 pinch salt
2 teaspoons rice flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • Wash the rice and put in the crock pot
  • Combine 1 cup of the milk with rice flour and add to the crock pot
  • Add rest of the milk and salt
  • Cook at high for 2 hours (occasionally stir)
  • Add sugar and vanilla sugar and cook for another 20 minutes
  • Move to serving dishes right away
  • Cover and cool in the fridge
  • Sprinkle cinnamon before serving

Very easy to make and filling.  I serve it with mashed potatoes and peas.  Any leftovers become lunch as a meatloaf sandwich either in a pita pocket or in bread with mayo, tomatos, pickles and lettuce.  Yummmm.

1/2 kilo lean ground beef
1 egg
1 package (113 gr) salted crackers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon blackpepper
1 clove garlic (mashed)
1/2 cup ketcup
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • Ground crackers using a blender.  I usually crush them by hand.
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of crushed crackers for the top
  • Mix all of the other ingredients
  • Spray a loaf shaped pan
  • Press the meatloaf to the bottom of the pan
  • Sprinkle the remaining crackers on top
  • Cook at 375 for 1 hour
