Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • your favorite breakfast toppings


  • Add the oil to a non-stick pot and heat over medium heat.
  • Add the rice and salt. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring often, to toast the rice a bit.
  • Pour in the water and stir.
  • Bring the rice to a gentle boil. 
  • Turn the heat to low and cover the pot. You want the rice to gently simmer. Low heat on a gas stove is plenty for simmering. If cooking on an electric stovetop, you may need to set the burner to medium-low heat.
  • Cook the rice, with the lid on, for 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed.
  • Stir the rice and serve topped with an egg and your favorite breakfast toppings, like cooked sausage or bacon and salsa.
