Do you have the recipe for Morrison's rice pudding?

Thank you!

Hi Ann Marie,

I had a recipe for "Rice Custard" that was made using egg custard pie filling. I wasn't sure if that was the same thing as "Morrison's Rice Pudding", so I consulted with a former Morrison's manager who is an acquaintance of mine.

Morrison's "Rice Pudding" is called "Rice Custard" in their kitchen manual, and they made it two ways. If you remember, as I do, Morrison's had egg custard pie every time I ate at Morrison's. It was their most popular dessert. (and my favorite). Due to its popularity, they kept a constant supply of the egg custard filling made up ahead of time. One of the ways they made their "rice pudding" involved using this pre-prepared egg custard filling and adding rice and raisins and nutmeg to it. This is the recipe that I had. It's the second recipe below. Morrison's lemon sauce recipe is below it.

However, there was also a "from scratch" recipe, and my acquaintance sent it to me. It is posted below.

There are some things to note about this recipe, as all of the recipes from the Morrison's Kitchen Manual. They use food service cooking utensils and equipment. You will have to substitute your home kitchen equipment as needed. They also occasionally use some food service ingredients that are not available to the home cook or that are no longer available at all. For instance, this recipe calls for "Voltex". Voltex was a frozen mixture of eggs and margarine that is no longer sold. I have no idea how to substitute for it. Finally, these recipes make large quantities of product for food service. This rice custard recipe makes 48 four- ounce servings. You will have to cut it down for home use.
