A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away….. or a least a place that seems galaxies away from where I live now, there was an asian-fusion restaurant that served delicious, spicy rice bowls. Sigh, how I miss that crowded little eatery. But I do have a solution! My own creation, although not exact, will conquer any spicy, rice bowl craving. The masses have spoken! They demand more eggy rice bowls! How could I possibly deny the masses something so delicious? It’s merely my civic duty. Enjoy.
3 Garlic Cloves
1/2 Yellow Onion
1/2 c. Dry Rice
6 Bacon Strips
3 Handfuls of Spinach
First thing’s first, rice must be made! Using your favorite rice, cook half a cup of dry rice following the instructions found on the package. Once the rice is cooked, set it aside.
On a baking sheet place six bacon strips, and cook at 400 degrees for sixteen minutes, or until they are brown and crispy.
Chop the onion and garlic cloves and place them in a sauce pan. Using olive oil, sauté them until the onion becomes translucent. Season with a pinch of salt and some ground pepper and add the spinach. Cook until the leaves are ready and the onions begin to brown on the edges.
Next, add the reserved rice and two pats of butter to the pan. Mix on medium heat. Crumble in four strips of bacon and finish mixing the rice mixture. Remove the pan from the heat and spoon the rice into two bowls.
Now, we’re in the home stretch. Fry two eggs using butter and season both with pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. When both eggs are cooked, place one on top of each rice bowl. Garnish with the remaining bacon strips and a dollop of sour cream.
