Garlic Rice With Fried Egg And Chorizo

(2 servings)

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 or 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 ounces chorizo
Heat the oil in large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant. Add cooked rice. Stir-fry until rice is coated with oil and is beginning to brown. Set aside.

Place a separate frying pan over medium heat, remove chorizo from casing and cook - stirring often until browned and cooked thorough (about 5 minutes).

Fry eggs to your liking. When done, top each serving of garlic fried rice with chorizo and a fried egg.

Note from Mr Breakfast:
The breakfast lover who sent us this recipe didn't submit quantities for the ingredients. So until I hear back from them, the above quantities are an educated approximation. To make 2 cups of rice, bring 1 and 1/2 cups water to a boil. Stir in 3/4 cup uncooked white rice. Cover. Cut heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. There will be a little bit of rice left over.

This flavorful combination of garlic rice, fried eggs and spicy sausage is somewhat popular for breakfast in the Philippines.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Anonymous Breakfast Lover for this recipe.
