It was 5:35pm, and I knew my husband and oldest son would be getting home from karate just after 6:00pm. I had mild Italian sausage (no casing), thawed on the counter. Like usual, I had no idea what to make. And like usual, I made something up on the fly. Unlike usual, it worked. It was a quick and super delicious meal. I decided to make rice bowls, with sausage patties and fried eggs. This was delicious at dinner, but would be incredible for breakfast, as well.
You won’t be disappointed, if you try this.
Breakfast Rice Bowls with Sausage and Fried Eggs
1 lb mild Italian sausage, without the casing (if it is in the casing, just squeeze it out)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 C bread crumbs (I used gluten free)
Jasmine rice, cooked as directed
Red pepper flakes
*any other spices you want can be added in*
*this would be good with almost any vegetable mixed in, or any type of ground meat*
Mix all the above ingredients together. Form into patties and pan fry (I used a mixture of peanut and olive oil). Once seared on both sides, add some water to your pan and cover. This will cook the inside of the sausage patties.
While those are cooking, make your rice. Lastly, make your egg. You can cook it however you want, but for me, a fried egg is magical. The way that the yolk coats everything…incredible.
I hope that you enjoy this as much as we did!
Annnnd, one more gratuitous yolk picture…
