  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup shredded 2% sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup scallions chopped


  • Spray a large frying pan with non-stick spray (or a little olive oil) and heat brown rice and black beans over medium heat until warmed through - about 2-3 minutes.
  • When the rice and bean mixture is hot, sprinkle the cheese on top and cover pan with a lid to melt cheese.
  • Meanwhile, fry eggs working in batches in a separate frying pan.
  • When you're ready to assemble, divide cheesy rice and bean mixture evenly between four plates. Top with salsa, two fried eggs and a sprinkle of cilantro and scallions.
