HOW TO MAKE BEST RICE & EGGS - My Daddy's Dish

 

I cannot fix Rice & Eggs without thinking of my daddy.  He passed away over twenty years ago when I was in my early twenties.  The picture at the bottom of this post is my father and me on my wedding day. One reason my father was special is that I knew that if I needed him, he was always there for me.  Just like my heavenly Father, who is always there for me.

The Bible says in Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

My father was a single parent during my teenage years.  He raised four teenagers and did a pretty good job.  He loved to cook Rice and Eggs for breakfast.  One reason he fixed it often is we loved it.  I believe the other reason was it was inexpensive and made enough to fill all of us up.  Today, it is one of my children’s favorite things for breakfast.  I change it up often by trying lots of different ingredients in it.   See all the variations of Rice & Eggs below.  This recipe for Rice and Eggs with Country Ham and cheese is one of our favorite ways to eat Rice and Eggs.  I hope you will try this easy and delicious breakfast.

Variations of Rice & Eggs:

  • white rice & eggs (the way I grew up eating it)
  • brown rice & eggs (the way I fix it now)
  • rice & Eggs with Country Ham and cheese (which is the recipe below)
  • crumbled sausage and cheese
  • rice and eggs with cooked, crumbled bacon and cheese
  • with vegetables like onions and bell pepper (saute the vegetables)
  • rice and eggs are even delicious with yellow rice

Rice and Eggs are quick, easy, inexpensive and delicious.  Save your leftover rice or fix some just for this dish.

  2. My husband loves rice and eggs, which I had never heard of until we got married. If I put other stuff in, sausage or what have you, I usually wrap it in a tortilla and call it a breakfast burrito.

    I am lucky enough to still have my Dad (after two heart attacks). I know how special a good Daddy is, who will always be there for you.

    • Amanda, Thank you for visiting Recipes For Our Daily Bread. I have never heard of anyone eating Rice and Eggs. I am exciting someone else knows how delicious it is. I have fried bacon first and then fixed the rice and eggs in the bacon and add crumbled bacon to it. My children love it. I will have to try it with the sausage. I will also have to try it in a tortilla. Maybe I will fix it and post about it. Blessings and have a great Thanksgiving! Diane Roark

  3. What a sweet pic. of you and your Dad! I bet it makes you a bit sad that you’re kids didn’t get a chance to meet him. I lost my Dad in my late 20’s before I had my children too! That’s what’s joyful about Heaven – all the good times to be had!

    Never heard of rice and eggs but will give it a try.
