I was really disappointed with this recipe, not because of the taste, but because of the lack of clarity and completeness in the directions. I followed the recipe exactly accept for the addition of allspice and nutmeg, and I got a sloppy mess that was more like pumpkin, rice and scambled eggs! If a few more steps are added, this could be a really great recipe. There was WAY too much liquid, and the prep and cook times were not even close (prep was about 30-40 min because of all the boiling, and bake time was almost 1.5 hours because of all the extra liquid). I would suggest the following changes: decrease milk to 3 cups to counter the moisture from the pumpkin. Mix all the sugar, spices and pumpkin together BEFORE you add it to the milk and bring to boil to prevent clumping. And most importantly, when you add the egg, whisk the eggs in a separate bowl then add just a small amount (like 1/2c) of the boiling liquids to the bowl that the eggs are in and whisk again to bring them slowly up to body temp. THEN slowly add the egg mixture to the boiling pot. If you skip this step, you will be making pumpkin rice egg drop soup! I will try this again, but it needs some serious refining.
