Stand Out Sides: Italian Fried Rice

Stand Out Sides: Italian Fried Rice
Mom and I really enjoy planning our weekend menu.  Sunday is a complete family day and Mom likes everyone to feel welcomed.  In our family, this starts with the food.  Friday I am posting our dinner but right now we are focused on the sides.

Dinner really shines when there are great side dishes backing it up.  In fact, it sounds a lot like my life right now.  The only way I am getting through each day is the awesome people I have behind me.  Making a dinner or side dish for them is the very least I could do to show my appreciation.

The best part of this recipe is that you can turn this into ANY kind of fried rice you want.Thank you Jennie for the inspiration!  What a fun, delicious, and quick side dish!

Italian Fried Rice (adapted from here)
Serves:  4
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped fine
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 tablespoon pepper
3 eggs
4 cups brown rice, cooked and cooled
3 tablespoons olive oil

Combine garlic, onion, parsley, parmesan, mozzarella cheese, and pepper into a large bowl.  Crack eggs into the bowl and stir.  Mix with the brown rice.  Pour the olive oil into a very large skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  When the oil is hot, add the rice.  Stir once and spread into a single layer.  Cook for about 5 minutes (until well-browned).  Stir with a fork.   Spread out into a single layer and cook another 8-15 minutes, until egg is fully cooked.  Serve immediately.

Until the next time my oven is on…
