This time of year is so super busy with work and school and blogging that I don’t have time to plan out my meals too far in advance. I have eaten more sandwiches lately than I care to admit. Ugh.
I was at WalMart a while ago and spotted these new yummies in the frozen food aisle…
…and then I promptly forgot about them. I suck, I know.
Sometimes I like to play a game with myself called Iron Pantry. It’s similar to the old show Iron Chef where you have certain ingredients you have to cook with only in my game I make myself use what I have in my pantry and fridge that need to be eaten before I will let myself go grocery shopping. I have come up with some really great meals this way and yesterday was no exception.
I dug around in the fridge and found a brown rice/quinoa/garlic mix, eggs, and a purple onion. In the freezer I found those forgotten about Farm Rich® Smokehouse Dry Rub Pork and Birds Eye BBQ Corn and I was all set.
I have been seeing these amazing waffle iron recipes floating around Facebook and Pinterest and decided I would create my own “fried rice waffle” with the rice mix, onion, and Birds Eye BBQ Corn. I mixed everything up and put it in the waffle iron…
…unfortunately the rice mix never came together like I wanted it to and was just a big ole mess so I went with plan B, a rice bowl!! The rice mix did come out out hot and crispy which I loved, I just wish it held together in a waffle shape.
I heated up the Farm Rich® Smokehouse Dry Rub Pork in the microwave and mixed it in with my rice…
…and then I topped the whole thing with a drizzle of BBQ sauce and a fried egg. Because everything is better with a fried egg, am I right?
And that my friends is how my not-so-famous BBQ Rice Bowl was made!!
One day I will figure out how to make “fried” rice in my waffle maker but yesterday was not the day. I’m still mad about that but I will just keep trying. And you know what? That rice bowl turned out pretty amazing if I do say so myself!
