I prefer to use regular

Pecans! Not Just For Pies
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped
1 hard-cooked egg, sliced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon paprika
Lightly butter 4 teacups; set aside. Combine potatoes and chives until well-distributed; set aside. Place one slice of egg in the bottom of each prepared teacup; fill each teacup (1/2 cup) with mashed potatoes. Pack potatoes so that when teacups are turned over, potatoes will hold their shape. Divide mayonnaise equally on 4 serving dishes, spreading thinly to make a bed; turn teacups over to unmold potatoes over mayonnaise. Sprinkle paprika
randomly over potatoes and serve at room temperature.
This potato dish, with its whimsical presentation, would grace a Southern luncheon nicely.
1 envelope (1/4 oz) unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons cold water
3 cups milk
1/4 cup short-grain white rice
7 tablespoons sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Ground cinnamon (optional)
Fresh berries (optional)
Place 3 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over water. Let stand 3 minutes to soften gelatin. Warm mixture in microwave until gelatin dissolves, about 30 seconds.
Meanwhile, place 2 cups of the milk and the rice in a medium saucepan. Stir over moderate heat until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in the dissolved gelatin, then the remaining 1 cup of milk and the sugar. Transfer the rice mixture to a large bowl. Freeze until mixture is cold and thickens but is not set, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes.
Whip the cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the rice mixture. Place in a serving bowl and chill. Sprinkle with cinnamon, or serve with fresh berries, if desired.

This is not your typical rice pudding! This delicious dessert is more like an Italian panna cotta, which is a cold custard dessert made of milk or cream, sugar and gelatin. However, the small amount of rice in this recipe is just enough to classify it as a rice pudding. Use arborio rice to keep the Italian influence.
