Angus's Birthday Dinner: Beggin' Egg & Cheese Fried Rice
Today is Angus’s 2nd birthday! Hard to believe our hairy beast is no longer a puppy! Just like last year, I decided to make our pup a special dinner.
I turned to Rachael Ray, who has a pet friendly recipe in each issue of her magazine. This is a take on fried rice made with brown rice, bacon, egg, rice and a little cheese. I actually didn’t have bacon but did have some pancetta so I used that. I also used boil-in-a-bag brown rice to speed up the meal.
Based on how quickly Angus ate his special birthday bowl of food, I think it was a hit!
Beggin’ Egg & Cheese Fried Rice
- 2 slices turkey bacon
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Chopped flat-leaf parsley,for sprinkling
In a medium nonstick skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels, then finely chop.
In the same skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, until warmed through, about 4 minutes. Add the cooked bacon and toss. Push the rice mixture to the side of the pan; add the egg to the pan and cook, stirring, until set, then stir into the rice. Transfer to a bowl, top with the cheddar and let cool. Sprinkle with the parsley.
