Rizogalo, or rice pudding, is something we make quite often in our household, and this recipe is by far the easiest and creamiest.

Many rizogalo recipes call for egg yolks, but I much prefer it without.

 12 cups whole milk
 1 cup sugar
 ½ tsp salt
 1 cup medium or long grain rice; heaping
 2 tsp vanilla
 cinnamon
1

To make rizogalo:

In a large saucepan, combine 12 cups of whole milk, the sugar, and the salt.
You can use 2% milk in place of the whole milk, but it won't be as creamy.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Be careful that the milk doesn't boil over!

2

Stir in the rice and reduce the heat to a low setting.
Be sure to adjust the heat so that it is at a gentle simmer. This should be just barely a simmer.

3

Cook for 50 to 60 minutes.
Stir every five to ten minutes, making sure that the rice has not stuck to the bottom.

4

The mixture should thicken up to the consistency of regular yogurt.
Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

5

Pour into a bowl, and allow the rice pudding to sit on the counter for ten minutes.

Cover the top of the pudding with plastic wrap so you don't get a thick skin on top.
Allow it to cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you find it's thickened up a bit too much, simply stir in a bit of milk or cream.

Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.
