Incredible Egg Variations  

Eggs are incredibly versatile so why not get creative with your carton

Soft-Boiled: You can get that same yolky goodness with soft fried eggs – and they can be stored in the fridge for up to two days if you want to make a few for a couple different meals, unless you can’t get enough Shoyu Rice with Soft Boiled Egg after just one helping! 

Scrambled: Arguably the easiest variation to prepare, scrambled eggs have found their way into various breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes. Whether you want to start the day with some huevos rancheros or crave a take-out favorite like our Singapore Rice, scrambled eggs will give you an extra push of energy! For an extra creamy texture, add a dollop of sour cream and beat with a fork before it hits the pan. Or, put your microwave to work and give this simple 6-minute ​​Microwave Egg Fried Rice a try. 

Poached: For those who don’t have a stovetop, cooked eggs are still within reach! You can most assuredly get away with poaching eggs in the microwave with no one the wiser! In fact, this tasty Pesto Egg Rice breakfast demonstrates just how easy it truly is! 

Fast Yet Flavorful Meals 

Delicious meals can be easier than ever – even for those who don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. Not everyone wants to make their own sauce or cook their own chicken, and that’s okay! For filling meals that won’t fill your schedule, Minute® Rice has plenty of quick and easy meal options that are packed with protein. For example, you can cook one of our Beans and Rice or Rice and Chicken recipes in just 15 minutes!
