Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 35 min | Serving size: 2-4


 
 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Organic Lowcountry Red Rice 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 

  • 4 large eggs 

  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter 

  • 1 smoked sausage, sliced into ½” pieces 

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped 

  • ½ red onion, chopped 

  • 1 green onion, chopped 

  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese 

Directions

  1. Heat and oven to 375 degrees F. 

  2. Combine 1 cup Organic Lowcountry Red Rice with 2 cups stock or water and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes, covered, then fluff and set aside. 

  3. Crack four large eggs into a bowl with the ¼ cup of shredded cheese and whisk to very smooth.  

  4. Set this aside. Heat a large sized non-stick skillet over medium-low heat.  

  5. Add the butter to the skillet and swirl to coat. Add the red onions, peppers and sausage. Allow these to sweat for 5-6 minutes stirring occasionally. Turn the heat to medium-high and add the cooked rice to the skillet so that the pan is approximately ⅓ filled. Pour the eggs into the skillet and stir in a figure 8 motion with a heat proof spatula for about 5-6 seconds.  

  6. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Check for doneness by shaking the pan gently. Look for a slight jiggle in the center of the eggs and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Return to the oven for 3-4 minutes. 

  7. Remove the pan and set aside to cool for 5 minutes before removing or cutting.
