Oh yummy! I actually lowered the servings to 1 and then to 1/2 cup of the rice and all else accordingly. It was still a big brekkie for me but oh so good. I used leftover rice, some baked ham that was in the freezer. This is substantial enough to keep you going for a long while and in my opinion it's quite suitable for any meal of the day. The seasoning was spot on for me in this dish. In short, I loved it. Thanks Deb :D
