Garlic Rice With Fried Egg And Chorizo

Garlic Rice With Fried Egg And Chorizo

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

I like to fry/scramble the chorizo with the eggs. And used left-over short-grain (sticky) rice. For two servings I would increase the eggs to four. For a single serving decrease the rice to a single cup and leave everything else as (2 eggs, etc) is.

I love "-silog" breakfasts! Although longsilog is my fave, chosilog is definitely a runner-up.

Actually in the Philippines this would be made with a full cup of rice and one egg per serving. And Filipino-style chorizo is not as spicy as the Mexican version.

This dish is called "chosilog" which means ("cho-":chorizo)/ ("-si-":sinangag: fried rice)/("-log":fried egg); other types of meat used in this recipe that can be substituted for chorizo are:

SPAM (spamsilog)
Longanisa (a different type of sausage: longsilog)
Tocino (a sweet type of sausage: tocilog)
Tapa (dried beef: tapsilog, probably the most famous of the "silog" dishes)
Corned beef (cornsilog)
Hot dog (hotsilog)

and many other varieties.
