A good way to use up that leftover rice that's sitting in the fridge. To first soften it up, try microwaving it while covered with waxed paper.

This dish lends itself to the addition of all sorts of other ingredients, or it can be eaten as is, as a side dish, or for lunch.

cooked rice: plain or flavored (one to two cups)
One or two large
eggs, slightly beaten
One large
yellow onion, sliced lenghtwise
1/4 to 1/2 stick
salt & pepper to taste


1Melt butter in frying pan, add sliced onion and saute until onion is limp. Add rice, mix into onion. Mix in beaten eggs and seasoning. Keep tossing mixture in pan until egg is properly cooked.
2That's the basis of it. If you feel like throwing in different spices, cut-up leftover meat, boiled shrimp, frozen mixed vegetables - the list is only defined by your imagination - feel free.
