On Saturdays my daddy made breakfast, he was famous for coming up with strange things. Now years later, my family loves to eat this for breakfast or dinner. My daughter would not eat anything unless it had cheese so she use to call it cheese rice. You can add just about anything to this easy easy dish.


  1. Melt butter in a skillet.
  2. Add left over rice.
  3. Make sure rice is well heated and coated with butter.
  4. Whisk eggs in a bowl then pour into the skillet.
  5. Scramble the mixture until you feel it's done.

I enjoyed this as a child but as Silver Surfer 3001 had described it. Hot buttered rice with an over easy egg. Instead of the Ketchup though, I grew up using Soy sauce....shoyu. Being Japanese, soy sauce was a stand in for salt, in my house, when eating eggs. I always have to bring a little package of it when I go out for breakfast and "grrrr" if I forget.

I hate wasting food, any food, even rice. This was a great way to use it up. Quick, easy, and tasty. I used 1 cup of rice, half a T. of butter and two eggs and it was just the right amount for a good sized serving for me. I topped it off with chopped tomato and onion. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I'm in love with this recipe!!!! I love things that are simple and easy to make but taste great!! I added some red chili powder since I love spicy food, onion powder and garlic salt as my spices. I would have added some real sautéed onions but the onion powder sufficed. And my honey used the suggestion of soy sauce instead of salt. I also added pieces of fresh bacon on top to eat with every bite. Delicious!!! This is my new got to recipe for breakfast. A little goes a LONG LONG LONG way and fills you up which is even better. Thanks for this recipe!!
