Last ditch dinner Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 20 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 1 serving

Well, for some reason, I always seem to have rice and eggs that haven’t quite spoiled yet on hand. Cooking the eggs over medium makes the rice sticky and gives it a nice texture. This makes a hearty, unhealthy, and totally desperate dinner.

  • 1/4 cup rice
  • 2 eggs
  • Parmesean cheese (the Kraft powdered kind, if you're truely desperate)
  1. Cook rice according to manufacturers directions. Add a bit of salt and about 1/2-1 tablespoon of olive oil, to taste.
  2. While rice is boiling, fry eggs, over-medium, in olive oil. I like mine with a dash of salt.
  3. Put rice into serving bowl, sprinkle liberally with cheese, top with both eggs. Break yolks of eggs and allow to run over the rice.
  4. If you’re not that desperate, fry a couple strips of bacon, crumble and incorporate.
