I almost always have leftover rice when I cook it, and I get tired of always making fried rice the next day. Here is an alternative that makes a tasty substitute for hashbrowns.
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup grated cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Butter for frying
- Turn on broiler. Mix together rice, eggs, and half the cheese. Season to taste.
- Melt butter in fry pan and add mixture when bubbly.
- Cook over medium heat until browned on the bottom, about 6 – 8 minutes.
- Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and place in broiler about 6 inches from heat. Cook until cheese melts and the dish is nicely browned.
Serves four. Depending on entrée choose an appropriate Taft Street wine.
