A mom has revealed how a ‘battle’ dish she hastily made for breakfast turned out to be a huge hit with her kids.
The woman made the simple dish with just four basic ingredients: eggs, leftover rice, cheese, and butter.
“What came out of the battle has become an absolute favorite breakfast meal of my children,” she wrote in a Facebook group.
‘Is someone else doing this? I take leftover rice and mix it with eggs. Stir everything together with a little butter, salt and pepper until it’s completely cooked and then I put a layer of cheese on top, put a lid on it, turn off the heat and let it melt.’
“Super easy and my kids love it.”

She said she “sometimes” served the cheesy scrambled egg rice with a slice of toast.
Her post got more than 7,000 ‘likes’, many clapping for her for sharing her ‘battle’ dish, while others said it’s ‘amazing’ how a handful of simple ingredients can make ‘such a delicious’ plate of food.
‘That’s a really clever way to stretch some eggs,’ one wrote, while another added: ‘Never tried it, but it looks delicious! Thanks for the idea!’
While another added: ‘We too had rice and eggs that grew up as a battle meal… and we all still love it. Comfort food.’
Many who made a similar dish said it was their family’s favorite too, with one saying, “It’s my favorite breakfast. I literally make rice to mix it with eggs the next morning.”
While another said: ‘First time I had this I was with my mother-in-law and it’s so good. I’m now making extra rice to have some left over in the morning.’

Other parents shared their own ‘battle dishes’.
“One of my biggest struggle meals was rice, cheese, topped with a fried egg and green beans. It was my kids favorite meal for years. You can make things with nothing,” said one mother.
Another wrote: ‘Our battle meal with rice is that you mix butter, cinnamon, sugar and a splash of milk for breakfast. It’s quite the bomb.’
As someone added, “My battle meal is eggs, rice, sesame seeds and soy sauce.”
Meanwhile, many pointed out that her dish was pretty much the base for making fried rice, but they would add other ingredients like sausages, shredded chicken, and chopped vegetables.
