Muscles Fried Rice...ish

So this isn't exactly a true fried rice recipe.  More like a gentle nod in that direction.  With strange elements. Whatever, give me the benefit of doubt here.  Have I ever lied about a recipe?

OK so confession, it was an experiment.  And before I took a bite, I said out loud that it might be really weird.  But it was actually delicious.  Like I hate half the pan, delicious. 

Muscles Fried Rice

* 3 eggs
* dash of milk
* 1/2 bag frozen spinach
* 1/2 bag frozen sugar snap peas  (or whatever green veggies you have on hand)
* rice
* frozen muscles (or another protein that you have on hand), defrosted
* Salt and Pepper to taste
* Seasoning to taste (I added a dash of both onion and garlic powder)

* Whisk eggs and dash of milk in bowl.  Add to hot pan and make soft scrambled eggs.  Remove from pan while still very soft- as in they are just barely cooked.

See...veggies are still frozen.  I should be call the lazy chef!

* Add a bit of EVOO to pan and then add your frozen veggies. 
* After everything comes to temperature, add muscles and rice. Add egg.  Mix well to make sure everything is incorporated.  This is why you wanted to take the eggs out while soft- they will cook a bit more at this point in the process.
* Add salt, pepper and any desired seasoning to taste.

I know it doesn't look like much and it is certainly not company worthy.  But it's really really tasty, fully of veggies, and super quick. 

Yup, that whole spend time making chicken and rice to use later business is really panning out!

PPC, I love the idea of freezing chicken and rice from your link.. What a simple, clever idea! And in regards to your comment on the Vineyard Vines outlet, they have four: Leesburg, VA; Freeport, ME; Central Valley, NY and Deer Park, NY. I highly recommend a visit! :)

I wouldn't be opposed to trying it, but I can't imagine where to begin looking for frozen mussles. Colorado must not be very daring in the mussles market because I don't recall having ever seen them before.
