We eat a lot of rice (usually instant) and I almost always make too much.
I make some sort of fried-rice like dish from it, like this:
- Leftover rice
- a couple of eggs, beaten
- meat, chopped up (luncheon meat, hot dogs, even leftover catfish once)
Melt some butter in the pan, and add the rice. Stir it around to get butter all through it and heat it through. Move the rice to one side of the pan, and drop in the eggs.
Let the eggs cook until set, then start stirring the egg and rice together (don't do this too soon, or your rice gets all gloppy).
Then add the meat (when I used leftover catfish, I also added a generous splash of hot sauce - Cajun Fried Rice!).
Cook until everything's heated through, and eat! Quick, easy, and only one pan to wash afterwards!
