Fast egg topped fried rice

Half-eaten view (sorry) 

Use leftover rice or ready rice to make fast fake out as good as, but healthier than, real take out. You can easily substitute other vegetables or meats.

Ingredients for 3 or 4 servings

  • 1.5 to 2 cups of cooked rice (I used Uncle Bens Brown Ready Rice)
  • 2 pats of butter, divided
  • 2 tsp of bacon grease, divided
  • 1 c of chopped cabbage
  • .5 c of chopped or shredded carrot
  • 3 chopped green onions
  • One slice of cooked bacon/ham, chopped, per serving
  • One egg per serving

Heat 1 pat of butter and 1 tsp of bacon grease. Fry carrots for about two minutes, then add cabbage, onions, and bacon/ham. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir every two minutes for about six minutes. The vegetables should be crispy but begin to brown. Remove vegetables to a bowl.

Melt another pat of butter and tsp of bacon grease in the pan. Salt and pepper the rice. Add the rice to the hot oil and stir to coat each grain. Stir every two minutes for about six minutes. Combine with the vegetables.

Fry one egg for each serving. Top each serving of fried rice with a fried egg. I served this with sauted zucchini.

Meal log 4/28

Dinner – ham, potato, carrot, green onions, and cabbage fried in a little butter. 


Lunch – roasted potato and vegetable salad with sauce gribiche 

Sauce gribiche is just vinegar, Dijon mustard, herbs, and  hard-boiled egg yolk whisked with olive oil.

For breakfast I had creamy spinach and sweet potato, which I posted earlier.

Another way to enjoy baked sweet potato for breakfast is to top with one tablespoon of natural peanut butter, 1/2 ounce of roasted nuts, or a serving of good ricotta cheese. I always add cinnamon and usually add a sweetener (maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar).

Breakfast yesterday – sweet potato with peanut butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
