Fast Rice Fritata

I like to cook but I also like the evening where the cooking doesn’t keep me in the kitchen for TOO many hours! This was always a favorite growing up and it is a quick standby for those busy days. I like to cook extra rice just to have some on hand for something like this.

Fast Rice Fritata
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chili flakes
2 cups cooked rice
4-ounce can chopped green chilies, undrained
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

In a large frying pan, brown the onions in the butter until tender.

Beat eggs with milk and seasonings. Stir in Rice, chilies and tomato. Pour into the frying pan with the onions. Turn the heat down low, cover and cook until top is almost set, about 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand about ten minutes before serving.

  1. Sounds yummy! Thanks! Thank you for the Masses for my Mom. We really appreciate all the spiritual gifts we receive from our friends during these times of loss. For us, we’re grateful that Our Lord chose to take Mom so peacefully and with family there. She was a devout Catholic and always had masses and novenas said for all those she knew who moved on – now it’s her turn. In Gratitude, The Clift, Spalione, and Caro Families


    1. Not a problem! You can’t take anything with you but your friends and relatives can continue sending gifts of prayers and Masses. When Carl’s mother died, I was shocked that his sister said she isn’t worried because she KNOWS Mom is in heaven! Needless to say, we are keeping the Masses going for her and Carl’s dad.
