Rice Omelette
The first time I saw it, it was in a recipe book and I decided to try it out of curiosity, now it is one of the ways that I like the most to eat rice. The ingredients are logical and the right time to eat well.

Kitchen: Spanish
Recipe type: Rice
Rations: 3

Preparation time: 
Cooking time: 
Total time: 

  • 200g of rice
  • 4 eggs
  • oil
  • salt and pepper

  1. The elaboration is simple, just we have to cook the rice, as we always do. In boiling water, salt and a few drops of oil, that's how I make it, sometimes I add a clove of garlic. When we have the boiled rice, we drain it and reserve it.
  2. We put a pan with a little oil to heat, while we beat a couple of eggs (I make the individual rice omelettes). When we have the eggs we add a pinch of salt and a little pepper to the rice. We mix it all up. If we have the hot pan, we can pour the mixture into the pan so that the omelette is made.
  3. We let it brown on both sides, turning it over when it touches and we can remove it when we see that it is ready.

Logically, each one has a cooking point for the tortillas, whether well done, with the egg to the point, etc. You can follow the same criteria for the rice omelette. I can only wish you good luck and comment that you can add a little onion or even a touch of chorizo.

To enjoy.

How to make baked rice omelette

Baked rice omelette

If you have to prepare a slightly different dish, then opt for this baked rice omelette. Yes, because we can also use the oven to make a simple and classic dish like this. Write down how!

Ingredients for people 4

  • 400 gr of cooked rice
  • 200 gr of onion
  • 200 gr of peppers
  • 300 gr of tomatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 gr of cheese
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Salt and oregano


First of all, it should be noted that you can always change the peppers or tomatoes for a little tuna or another ingredient that you like the most. That said, we preheat the oven to 170º. We chop both the tomatoes, the peppers and the onion. We put them in a frying pan with very little oil. We leave them for a few minutes and remove to mix with the rice that will already be cooked. To this mixture we add a pinch of salt, spices such as oregano and beaten eggs. When everything is well mixed we will have to pour into a baking dish, previously greased with a little oil. We will let it cook for about 25 minutes. But be careful, each oven is different, so you will have to check that the upper part is firm to know that it is done. Once we remove it from the honor, we place the cheese on it. The best thing in this case is that they are slices, but you can also add a little grated cheese. Only with the heat given off by the rice tortilla will the cheese melt. When it is a little warm, we can already swell the tooth.

As you can see, the rice omelette is a very complete dish. On the one hand, it is the easiest thing to do. Something that will appeal to both adults and children in the house. On the other hand, it is basic to be able to take advantage of food like the rice that we have left over. Take advantage!.
