Egg Nog Rice Pudding

I love egg nog and look forward to Thanksgiving when it once again graces the shelves next to the milk.  The hubs & I snapped some up the other day when shopping  (I love to cook & eat, but hate to grocery shop), but I failed to read the use by date.  Good thing I did look at it when I poured a tall glass.  It was only good for two more days so I decided to make some rice pudding.

Egg Nog Rice Pudding

2 eggs                   1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 cups egg nog       1 1/2 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup sugar         1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine ingredients in large bowl; mix well.  Poor in 2 quart casserole and place in baking pan filled with 1" hot water.  Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until knife inserted comes out clean.  Serve warm or cold.    6 servings

My Mom gave me this rice to use just for when I make rice pudding. Which is not often enough.
My MIL swears by Trader Joe's Ground Cinnamon and she makes cinnamon rolls that are better than Cinnabon. 
Now that has me wanting a cinnamon roll.  Maybe the hubs will want to make them with me this weekend.
