Savory Breakfast Rice

I’m a huge fan of savory breakfast, and this recipe checks all the boxes. It’s easy to make, loaded with flavor and comes together in under 10 minutes!

In fact, I love this recipe so much I have been making it at home for years. I love how the rice is a little crispy on the bottom and gets smothered in the yolk from the egg. Add in the little kick of spice, and this is the perfect way to start the day.
