Growing up, I remember my dad making these for me every time we had leftover rice in the fridge. I generally make these for breakfast but occasionally enjoy them for dinner when my husband is out of town and I want to make something quick and easy. This recipe is a great base. Have fun changing it up and making it your own! Great topped with salsa!




  • Mix rice, egg, basil, milk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.

Cook's Note:

Substitute brown rice for the white rice if preferred.

Thanks Lowe! This made for a nice simple snack. I sprinkled a little cinnamon over mine.
