The 5 Uses for Leftover Rice post from yesterday was perfectly timed, as we were whipping up some of our own version of garlic fried (leftover) rice with eggs. Although we weren’t camera ready (just hungry), the premise and our DIY recipe is easy:

Do it yourself:

  • Fry up a couple cloves of garlic until golden brown (add more if you are a garlic fiend)

  • Stir fry your rice with a little oil (wok recommended)

  • Fry two eggs (you could also scramble them, if preferred) and place on top of a bowl of fried rice

  • Garnish with the fried garlic, rice wine vinegar (we like A LOT of it and use Datu Puti “Sukang Maasim” spiced white vinegar which combines distilled vinegar, water, onion, hot pepper and garlic; we’ve also made our own simpler version with just hot peppers and vinegar), and salt to taste

Although not especially healthy, it is incredibly delicious, inexpensive, and simple for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Anyone else a fan?
