Sweet Comfort Rice Puddin'

Lord Honey, rice puddin' is one of those dishes that can stretch leftovers into another day--and be even better and a whole lot sweeter the second time around. Y'all will know what I'm talkin' about when you taste the lush, creamy decadence of my "Sweet Comfort Rice Puddin"--it'll make your heart fill like it's wrapped in a warm, fuzzy blanket.

3-cups cooked rice


¼-cup white sugar

½-cup sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2-cups milk
