$3 Dinner - Omrice

Tonight, I'm challenging Erin Chase, the queen of $5 Dinners. I made Omrice for dinner today. Basically, it's fried rice covered with egg skins. I can't tell exactly how much it cost us to make this meal since potato & onion were purchased in bulk, but it should be somewhere between $2.50 and $3.

Ingredients (2 servings)

2 cups of rice, whatever vegetables you have (I used 1 potato, 1/4 onion, 1/4 green bell pepper), salt, pepper, 4 eggs, ketchup, oil


1. Cook rice

2. While rice is cooking, chop the vegetables and sautee them in pan, adding salt and pepper

3. Beat the eggs and make thin egg skins

4. Add cooked rice to the pan and mix with vegetables, adding more salt and pepper

5. Place fried rice on a plate and cover with egg shell
