What’s For Breakfast?

Tired of the usual bowl of cereal, cup of coffee, and buttered toasts on the breakfast table? Perk up your appetite to start a new day right. You don’t have to spend more money to have a change of breakfast menu. Using a bit of imagination and most of the left-overs inside the refrigerator, anyone can easily whip out an appetizing and mouth-watering fried rice dish for the morning banquet.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Pack it with energy to ensure that both your body and brain will function properly. Most people are prone to sluggishness when the palate and the appetite are unsatisfied.

Cooking fried rice is very easy and quick. It is also a big help when you want to clear the refrigerator. Just chop, cut, slice, or shred the left-over chicken, meat, or even seafood such as shrimp, prawn, and crab. Throw in vegetable bits for more color and texture. Mmm... your fried rice will look yummy and healthy. Serve hot on a plate or rice bowl to keep it warm.

The Quickest - Garlic Fried Rice

Garlic Fried Rice is the easiest. Just heat small amount of oil in a non-stick wok or semi-shallow pan. Stir in crushed or minsed garlic cloves and cook until light golden. You can tell that your garlic oil is ready for the pre-cooked (or left-over) rice when the delicious aroma wafted in the air.

Keep heat at low to avoid burning the garlic. Put heat to medium when rice has been added. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and a dash of fine white pepper, if desired. Stir until all flavors are well-blended. Lower stove temperature and cover the wok to hasten the heating of rice. Serve hot with scrambled or sunny-side eggs and some greens.

Easy Fried Rice Recipes

Fried rice for breakfast is a sure way to provide enough fuel for the body to keep on the go until lunch time. Fried rice is easy to prepare and the ingredients are always available. This dish is versatile and flexible, too. A bowl of fried rice is often concocted from scraps of food left-over from past dinners and lunches.

Actually, fried rice recipes do not really exist. There are no rules on measurement and number of ingredients. You can cook fried rice with your eyes. Anything inside the refrigerator or the cupboard can join the sizzling garlic in oil. A scoop of fried rice can be as simple as a garlic-flavored rice or it can be a work of art. Colorful, flavorful, and with lots of texture.

How to Cook Spicy Fried Rice

Spice the fried rice with chopped onion, sliced shallots, and puliogare powder. Sprinkling a generous amount will result to a spicier dish. Serve with hard-boiled eggs. Eggs should be boiled for 7 to 10 minutes; then remove from heat and cool in tap water for 5 minutes. Cooling boiled eggs will ease the removal of shells.
