What to do with so much cooked white rice?

Hello! Does anyone know what I can do with so much extra cooked white rice? I bought a family meal of food and now I ended up with so much rice. If you have any dessert ideas or any other ideas it would be great!

I often cook much more rice than I need of the evening meal. Freeze it in portion sizes (ind. or family) and thaw and reheat when needed.

Soup--add broth and meat (chicken or beef) and veggies, maybe carrots and celery.

I second rice pudding. Yummy! I love it so much when it's warm and comes straight from the oven. Here is an easy recipe:
Ingredients:
  • 2 c. cooked rice
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 c. raisins
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered cinnamon
Preparation:

Place rice in bowl, add all ingredients, stir to mix. Pour into greased baking dish or pan. Bake about 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

You could be Marshallese and eat it topped with canned tuna and ketchup (or soy sauce if you prefer!) I spent a year in the Marshall Islands and that's what I ate one or two times a day for a year!!! If I was lucky we topped it with fish instead.

Or if you want to be REALLY Marshallese, you'll eat it cold for breakfast by itself!

The first is actually yummy, the second I could never get used to!

Mix it with chopped fresh cilantro, lime zest, and lime juice for something really close to what you get at Chipotle. Serve with tacos or other mexican food.

Add some vanilla yogurt, chopped apples, raisins, and walnuts; then sprinkle it with a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon.
