An Unexpectedly Awesome Use for Leftovers
Here's a new take on breakfast for dinner that incorporates a standby (eggs) with a more unusual ingredient (leftover rice). You start by softening minced scallions, ginger, garlic and red-pepper flakes in a skillet with some oil; then you spread the rice on top and let it sit until it's nice and crispy. Next, you pour a mixture of eggs whisked with soy sauce on top; sprinkle peas over the eggs and continue cooking on the stove for a few more minutes. A brief blast under the broiler turns the eggs golden and bubbly.
