Arroz Con Leche

Our dish that we decided to make would be Arroz Con Leche the Spanish way.


3-3 1/4 cups of cooked white rice

2-2 1/2 cups of fine sugar

6 tbsp butter

6 cups milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

5 eggs, beaten

3 tbsp. Spanish Brandy

Dash of salt


In a large sauce pan mix milk, rice, and butter. In another small bowl mix eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Mix the egg mixture to rice and mix until thickened. Transfer the mixture into a baking pan and place pan in a larger pan containing 1 in of water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake it for about 1 hour. Remove pan from the water and allow to cool. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
