Lutong Bahay: Scambled Eggs and Tomato Rice Bowl

Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Lutong Bahay is a short tag on the title which I use to feature home-cooked food, either in our own home or at a friend's house.

Late last week after the peak of the monsoon rains, I decided to whip up an easy rice bowl meal. Well, I'm not really one who's always in the mood to tinker in the kitchen. However, since I was left alone at home, I needed to cook if I want something to eat.

I may not be a pro in the kitchen, but I have some recipes up my sleeves. Due to the floods though, we didn't have many ingredients available in the pantry. And being the lazy body, I just wanted something fairly easy and quick to make like ochikeron's new recipe which I somehow had to tweak to fit more into my liking and to the ingredients I have.

scrambled eggs and tomato rice bowl ingredients

Ingredients:
  • 4 pieces of eggs
  • 2 tbsp. of Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise
  • 2 pieces of boiled tomatoes
  • 1 bowl of cooked rice
  • 2 tbsp. of minced onion
  • 2 tbsp. of tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. of cooking oil
  • A dash or two of salt and pepper
Procedure:
  1. Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan and sauté the minced onion until translucent. Add in the cooked rice and stir-fry with tomato ketchup. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl until frothy and add salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, put the Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise in and beat it to soften. Next, pour the beaten eggs with the mayonnaise while whisking the mixture until well blended.
  3. Cook the egg mixture on low in a sauce pan, stirring continuously to make the perfectly creamy and fluffy scrambled eggs. Make sure not to overcook it.
  4. Serve the tomato rice in a bowl and top it with the scrambled eggs. You can add the boiled tomatoes on the side or replace it with your choice of veggies. You can also top the scrambled eggs and tomato rice bowl with slices of hot dogs, ham or bacon if you're not into vegetables.
This Scambled Eggs and Tomato Rice Bowl recipe is definitely very easy to make and can be customized to your liking. Aside from a wide variety of ingredients you can use for the topping, you can also replace the ketchup with bagoong (fish or shrimp paste) if you don't dig the tomato flavor, to give you a Scrambled Eggs and Bagoong Rice Bowl. However, make sure not to leave out the mayonnaise in the egg mixture as this is the key to making creamier, fluffier and yummier scrambled eggs.

  3. love it! Mayo and egg, it's creamy and delicious. Just recently, I tried adding chopped celery too. It adds crunch to the already delicious scrambled egg :)

  6. I think I like the bagoong alternative more. But the dish is quite appetizing and tempting too! I often whipped up something especially during lunch when I am almost always alone.

    1. I was actually planning to do the bagoong rice bowl variant, but I can't find the bagoong in the kitchen.. haha.. So I ended up using tomato ketchup.. ^^ It tasted good anyway.

  7. This is my kind of dish! I'm not a fan of boiled tomatoes though. haha Try adding a little bit of atsuete powder in the oil before you fry the rice to give it a nice color, then add bagoong! And yeah, I also like my scrambled eggs with mayo, and sometimes instead of mayo I use homemade chunky chicken spread :D Now I'm hungry!

    1. That's a really good suggestion! :D I'll definitely try adding some atsuete when I make the bagoong variant.. ^^ Oh, and I haven't tried using chicken spread for the eggs, but I'll give it a go soon!
