Huevo Frito Con Arroz (Fried Eggs with Rice)

One of best Cuban breakfasts and comfort foods.

Serving Size: 2


Huevo Frito Con Arroz (Fried Eggs with Rice)

4 eggs
2 cup cooked white rice
2 russet potato or 4 small brown potatoes
salt to taste
oil to deep-fry or pan fry


Heat oil in a pan on medium high heat (enough oil to submerge cubed potatoes)

Peeled potatoes, cut in half, then lay flat cut in 3 long segments then cut across into cubes. Put them in cold water in a bowl

Drain potatoes and carefully with a large spoon or something put them in the hot oil (the reason I wet the potatoes first is so that they become really crispy but you need to be careful because they will jump a bit so don’t dump it with your hands)

Fry potatoes for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown, after like 6-7 minutes you may need to flip them around so other sides can brown nicely. Set potatoes aside in a plate with a towel to drain and sprinkle them with salt to taste.

Heat rice in microwave or have fresh rice thats hot from rice cooker. If using 1 day old rice sprinkle rice with some water, cover well and put in microwave for 2 minutes on high to get it really hot. Have hot plate of rice ready for you this is important.

In same oil you fried potatoes, add 4 cracked eggs whole and deep-fry it will cook quickly, you want them over easy, so the yolk is nice and kinda runny to wet your rice or dip your potatoes.

When done scoop out, put over rice, sprinkle with salt, serve potatoes on the side and eat while hot because yolk will firm up after a while. We love to break the yolk with a fork and mix it all up the the rice.

Enjoy in Huevo Frito Con Arroz!
