My kids love the rice pilaf I make. They could eat it every day if they could. But it's kind of a pain to make. Not like mom's easy fried rice especially when you use minute rice! I didn't have any green onions, and I also only had brown rice, but it still turned out amazing! And bonus- this was the first time in my daughter's life she had a bite of an egg without upchucking. And she is 7 next month. So hurray for that!
I actually had this leftover rice twice for breakfast this week with an additional egg. Yum!
Mom's Fried Rice
Makes around 2 1/2 cups
2 cups minute rice, white or brown
onion, chopped (1/2 cup-1 cup to your preference)
green onions, chopped (to your preference again)
2-3 Tbsp butter
salt and pepper, to taste
soy sauce, to taste
Cook he minute rice as directed. Brooke swears the minute rice it what makes this fried rice the bomb, but if you have leftover rice in the fridge I'm sure it would taste amazing too! While the rice is cooking, melt the butter in a big frying pan and saute the chopped onions until they are about done. Scoot them over to the corner of your pan and scramble 2-3 eggs. Once the eggs are done mix them up with the onions and add the cooked rice. If you need to add more butter go ahead and do so (I won't tell). Mix everything all together and add lots of salt and pepper. Then drizzle soy sauce over it but don't overkill. You don't want the rice to be brown unless it's brown rice. Less is usually more and you can add later if you need to. And it's done! Enjoy!
