Egg, rice and black beans

Dad served his mission in Brazil and we always loved learning new things about his experience there.  A common staple in Brazil is rice and black beans.  Often they would eat the rice and beans together with a fried egg.  It was something dad ate often on his mission and we also enjoyed growing up. One of my favorite parts of this meal was cracking the center of the egg and eating the yolk with a big spoonful of rice and beans.  As an adult it is one of my favorite things to eat when I have left over black beans from another meal.

Rice (white or brown)
black beans

Place rice on center of plate.  Load black beans on top.  Fry egg and place on top of beans.

  1. Dad would always tell us that only the rich people got eggs on their beans and rice. I always figured we couldn't be too poor because we always had eggs for our black beans and rice.
