Over Christmas in the Rocky Mountains this year my sister got up each morning and made her favorite breakfast treat: Rice & Eggs with cheese. Her daily breakfast was so beautiful and unique I HAD to include it in the blog.
This dish is best, I think, with an over-easy egg. With a soft yolk can mix the golden goodness in with the rice and melted cheese. Not to mention the fact that it's the perfect breakfast to fuel a day of winter sports!
LOLA'S CHRISTMAS EGGS
2 cups water
1 cups uncooked rice
1-2 T shredded cheese
fresh ground pepper
Bring 2 cups water to a bowl. Add one cup uncooked rice of your
choice, a glug of olive oil, and a few shakes of sea salt. Bring back
to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until most of the
water is gone, let sit for a few minutes. While its sitting, make an
over-easy or fried egg.
Serve rice in a bowl with a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top. Lay
fried egg on top and finish with plenty of salt and pepper.
Thats the 'recipe' form of my delicious rice and eggs, yum yum, I
think I'll make rice right now. :)
