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