Use up the leftover rice in your fridge by making it into a quick and easy breakfast or lunch.
Eggie rice cups are simple. All of the ingredients can be tossed together in minutes and cooked to perfection in the oven.
Best of all, you can mix and match the ingredients to fit your tastes. Add a little less rice and some chopped fresh veggies, or use a different kind of cheese.
Finish it off with your favorite herb and spice blend. I buy herb and spice blends here that are extremely fresh and hand mixed so they contain maximum health benefits.
You can use any kind of cooked rice for this dish, including brown rice or white rice. Are you worried about eating white rice? Find out why I eat white rice and not brown rice.
