Gluten-Free Morning Goodness

Some mornings it's hard to figure out what to make for breakfast, especially since we have a gluten-free diet. It's really expensive to keep cereal on hand in a 4-person household when a box of gluten-free cereal ranges from $8-$10. So, we do a lot of egg-based breakfasts, simple gluten-free crêpes, and fried potatoes with turkey sausages. Hearty breakfasts are nice and help us get off to a good start, but sometimes, we want quick and simple. Those are the days that we do Breakfast Rice.

The husband and I have different ideas what constitutes Breakfast Rice. He likes just butter and brown sugar melted into the hot rice. I like brown sugar and warm milk in mine, although recently he's convinced me that a hint of butter really does add a nice touch.

Because Breakfast Rice really depends on your personal preference, the ingredients and quantities below are merely guidelines.
