Nutmeg Rice is a recipe that comes straight from my dad!
My dad used to make Nutmeg Rice as a snack for himself when I was a kid. It’s sweet and spicy and has a definite warmth to it that reminds me of traditional Fall flavors. I have not made this recipe in years! In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever made it since leaving home until now!
I’m always trying to find fun, easy recipes to get Jaxon in the kitchen with me and thought it would be special for him to make a recipe that my dad taught me. Jaxon’s attention span, like a lot of other kids, is short. This recipe can be made easily and quickly and really make your child feel like they’ve made something awesome the whole family can enjoy!

I’ve strayed ever so slightly from my dad’s version. He uses white rice but I wanted to create a dish that tasted of Fall flavors and had a more seasonal look to it as well! I decided to use Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice in the Brown, Red, and Black Rice flavor. It not only has the look and flavor I want, but the microwavable packs make it quicker and easier for kids to help cook. Jaxon is still afraid of the stove, so these are a great option for us!
Making Nutmeg Rice is super easy!
Microwave the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice for 90 seconds.
Add the nutmeg, sugar, and milk.
Nutmeg Rice is delicious on its own just like how my dad used to eat it, but also makes an easy Fall side dish!
This recipe for Nutmeg Rice may sound a little different, and it is, but it’s definitely worth a try! You might just love it!
