Mom’s Buttery Sweet Rice


This was one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast as a child. It was a special treat! Hot buttery sweet rice with toast on the side, mmm!! Even to this day I can still remember how the toast tasted after I tore off a piece and dunked it in the leftover juice. Mom always made sure my rice had enough leftover water to achieve that. You know how people love to sop up gravy with biscuits? Well, I loved to sop up that sweet liquid with my bread! The toast just melted on my tongue! I will occasionally eat this as a comfort food when I want something hot and fast. My husband thought it was so strange to eat rice with butter and sugar in it.  He still thinks it's strange after all these years together 😁. Sadly our kids share his opinion on the rice, without ever tasting it. Maybe someday they will actually try it.  They won't be disappointed, nor will you. What are you waiting for my friends? Get that toast ready to go dunking into sweet buttery rice!
