There were times we got Eggs & Rice for breakfast when our Mother would forget to buy the grits. The eggs were runny rather than scrambled.
I used wild rice and added a clove of garlic and fresh parsley it came out really good.
This is a lifesaver! Growing up Jewish my comfort food was matzoh brei, which is dry crackers fried in eggs. Recently I've been searching for a substitute because matzoh is very expensive, doesn't taste like it used to (I tried several brands), and for political reasons. I just tried this recipe and it works for me. I made it plain, but in the future I'll try the various suggestions people have posted. Thank you for saving my comfort food yens, my wallet, and my conscience. Yum!
I had never heard of anyone doing this until my stepdad made it for us all one morning when I was young, using leftover white rice from our Chinese takeout the night before. I was like, "Well, that's just totally weird and gross." Haha. It's actually really good! The way I make it is just whisk the eggs (as if to scramble them), spray a pan with cooking spray, and pour the eggs in. Then I pour the rice over it right away, and I just scramble it all together at once. I don't put anything on it but soy sauce. It's basically like fried rice with a ton of egg. Good breakfast. Thanks for posting it.
WOW was THIS little recipe a surprise!!! It was GOOD! I just added Parmesan cheese and voila! YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!!
This is a nice, tasty dish that you can add all kinds of things to. I like mushrooms, green onions, and soy sauce. Thanks for posting.
Made for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2009. First time I had ever heard of eggs and rice was while watching Justin Wilson's TV cooking show years and years ago. I always make extra rice to use in this way for breakfast and some for fried rice for dinner. I scrambled my eggs in per your recipe with some Frank's hot sauce on top. This is a good, simple way to dress up your scrambled eggs.
This was really good! I made this for our weekly office breakfast. It was my turn to bring breakfast and I wanted to bring something different. I did add sauteed chopped green bell pwpper and some shredded cheddar cheese, but I'm sure it would have been just as good as originally written. Thanks for posting, I'll be making this again!
This is a great comfort food! Growing up without a lot of money, the rice was used as an extender for many many many things in our house. Our family twist on the recipe is that rather than scrambling eggs into the rice, we would simply cook regular steamed rice, and then fry the eggs to a perfect over medium (over easy could work for this dish as well - even for the squeamish). Place the fried egg(s) atop the rice, and chop them up and mix thoroughly, so that the yolk flows through the rice, and you'll think you've died and gone to heaven. If you feel really daring, and want to experience it the way we did as I was growing up, you could add a dash of ketchup to the dish as well.... Great recipe! Glad to know I'm not the only one in this great big old world with "funny" tastes in confort food...
This is realey great I did like sugarpea and tryed a lot of different things.
