Lamb’s Famous Rice Pudding

1 cup long grain rice
1 cup sugar
8 cups whole milk
4 eggs

2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 t. vanilla
1 cup raisins (not in the original recipe, but for me it is a must)

In large saucepan combine rice, 1 cup sugar and 8 cups milk. Cook, covered, until the rice is tender, stirring frequently (about 1 hour). In mixing bowl combine eggs, 2 cups milk, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla. Beat well. When the rice is tender, add egg mixture; cook until mixture just starts to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool then chill. (It will thicken as it cools.)
