A famous frugal quote from the Great Depression was “Use it up, Wear it Out, Make it do…or Do without”. And that’s certainly the case with frugal cooking. I just hate throwing out leftovers. So here’s a unique breakfast “leftover” idea–Breakfast Rice.
Here in the US we eat oatmeal, cream of wheat (farina) and grits as breakfast foods. And what are those except hot cooked grains? So why not rice? It’s a very mild soft grain that goes well with a variety of flavors. We already use it in both savory dishes and sweet dishes (rice pudding anyone)–why not as a hot breakfast cereal?
It’s easy-just take some leftover plain rice and heat it in the microwave with a dash of water. I prefer to eat it the way I eat my cream of wheat or oatmeal-with some milk and cinnamon sugar. . . but you could really do anything with it that you’d do with any hot cereal.
What do you think? Have you ever eaten breakfast rice? What is your favorite add in?
