Maybe I missed it but our favorite is sautee the rice the next morning with garlic and butter. Splash with soy sauce. then fry an egg and put it over the top of the rice. This is fab for breakfast!
Last week I had left over rice and added cubed, oven cooked potatoes and a can of seasoned diced tomatoes. It was yummy. DD took it in her lunch to finish it off.
Thanks for the great list
