Ingredients

  • Minute® Ready to Serve White Rice
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 crumbled cooked sausage
  • Salt and black pepper (optional)

Instructions

  • Start your day off on the right foot with a simple and savory breakfast made with just 4 ingredients — eggs, sausage, cheese and our quick-cooking Minute® Ready to Serve White Rice.

    Step 1

  • Heat rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

  • Combine the egg, cheese and sausage together in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 60 seconds, or until the egg is set.

    Step 3

  • Transfer the rice to a small bowl and top with the egg and sausage mixture. Season with salt and pepper, if using.

    Recipe Tip

    For easier cleanup, you can combine and cook the egg, cheese and sausage in an empty Minute® cup. Serve the egg-sausage mixture over the rice and simply discard the cup.

On-The-Go Breakfast

Busy morning? No problem! With a few ingredients, you can whip up a quick and filling breakfast made with quality ingredients. Even when you’re short on time, there’s no need to skip breakfast or grab something that’s loaded with additives.

Made with just 4 ingredients — eggs, sausage, cheese and white rice — this scramble is perfect for your busy lifestyle.

This dish starts with our quick-cooking Minute® Ready to Serve White Rice, which is precooked, Non-GMO Project Verified and is made without added preservatives or MSG. Want to add more whole grains to your meal? Use our Minute® Ready to Serve Brown Rice. Want to make your dish organic? Use our Minute® Ready to Serve Organic White or Brown Rice.

Then, simply add eggs from your fridge. Choose white, brown or organic, if desired. You can also use any variety of sausage you like, whether it be frozen or freshly-cooked leftovers from a previous meal. When it comes to cheese, opt for whichever type you prefer. We recommend trying Cheddar, Monterey Jack, feta or a Mexican variety like cotija or queso fresco.

Tasty Mix-Ins

The best thing about this breakfast is that you can customize it any way you like! Try it with your favorite ingredients or use up any leftovers you have on hand. A few additional toppings you might like include avocado, tomatoes or fresh herbs, such as chives.

You can also try using the same ingredients in new ways, like with this Easy Cheesy Rice Omelet. Made with eggs, salsa, rice and Cheddar, it’s a different spin on a similar theme. Or, try a microwave Egg White and Rice Frittata using organic rice.
