2 Cloves of garlic
½ Tbs. Salt
¼ Tbs. Ground black pepper
¼ Tbs. MSG
Oil for frying
The Longanisa Sausage in a frying pan add water and oil and bring to a boil. Let the water totally evaporate and wait for the oil to extract from the sausage links. Let it fry for about 5 minutes rolling the sausage links constantly to cook evenly.
Beat two eggs as you would normally make an omelet. Season them with salt, cook in a frying pan, remove, and set aside. Next get a third egg and cook it sunny side up. Remove and set aside.
The Garlic-Fried Rice:
Break up the rice smoothly and set aside. Heat frying pan, add oil, and saute garlic until golden brown. Next add rice and stir for 1 minute. Then add salt & pepper and msg to taste and let it cook for an additional 5 minutes. Stir the rice constantly to avoid scorching. Add more salt if needed.
In a platter arrange the longanisa, eggs, and fried rice and garnish with freshly sliced tomatoes and onions or slices of cucumber (Pipino). Then ask yourself this, When was the last time you had a breakfast this good! Enjoy your breakfast.
