Fried eggs and rice
So...as simple and quick (and probably a little silly for a food blog) dishes go - this is one of my favorites. Maybe because I love eggs. Maybe because my mom used to make it for me after school. Most likely because the smell of it all together takes me back to childhood and being in my mothers kitchen.
Now I make it for my daughter which makes me love it even more.
quick and easy...here you go...
You will need:
hot cooked rice
2 or 3 eggs (I like 3 : 2 to mix into the rice - 1 for on top)
toasted sesame seeds
soy sauce (low sodium or regular depending on what you prefer)
Make sure skillet is hot - medium high. Add vegetable oil (2 to 3 turns around the pan). Add 1 or 2 eggs. Let fry for couple minutes until edges are brown and crispy, then turn the heat down until yolk is cooked to your liking. Meanwhile assemble rice, sesame seeds and soy sauce in your favorite bowl. When egg(s) are ready remove from pan and add to rice mixture. Turn heat back up on stove. Fry last egg. While waiting for your last egg sort of chop and mix the rice mixture - add more soy sauce if needed. Cover with last fried egg.
