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
Rachael Ray

  • 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.
