Make It Egg-Cellent - in partnership with Eggland’s Best, we asked our favorite chefs to take a breakfast, lunch, or dinner staple and make it better by adding EB eggs to it, and ended up with a few exclusive and delicious recipes that you can make at home.

Pork adobo rice with fried egg is one of my favorite comfort foods. The contrast of flavors and textures is magical. This dish is quick and easy to cook (and it makes for great leftovers!). Best of all, it can be served any time of day.

This recipe gives new life to day old cooked rice. Flavorful Filipino pork adobo is tossed with garlic fried rice and topped with a sunny-side up Eggland’s Best fried egg. The runny egg yolk provides creaminess while the crispy egg whites add another dimension of texture to this savory rich dish.

Eggland’s Best eggs are ideal for this recipe because they stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs and have the delicious, farm fresh taste that I love.

Step 1

Place heavy-bottomed non-stick skillet (or saute pan) over medium heat. Add half of oil and swirl to coat pan. Once oil is shimmering and hot, add 2-3 Eggland’s Best whole eggs. Reduce heat to low.

Step 2

Cover skillet. Allow Eggland’s Best eggs to slowly cook for about 2 minutes, until whites are set but yolk is still runny. Remove cover. If desired, flip egg to other side and cook for 15-20 seconds to ensure whites are cooked through.

Step 3

Repeat with remaining Eggland’s Best eggs.

Step 4

Transfer egg to portioned-out fried rice. Season with salt and pepper and a splash of Maggi seasoning.

Tip

Do not overcrowd the Eggland’s Best eggs during cooking. Cook two or three eggs at a time, depending on size of skillet. A 10-inch skillet is great for 2 eggs, while a 12-inch skillet is better for 3 eggs.
