Bear in a Blanket

Looking to hibernate to beat the heat this summer? Try this Bear in a Blanket recipe for a cute and fun take on brown rice and eggs. 


Serves: 1

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 50 minutes


  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 scrambled eggs (for the blanket)
  • Small, thin slices of cheese (for the ears and nose)
  • Small, thin slices of black olive (for the eyes and nose)


1. Cook brown rice on stove top as directed on bag, or about 45-50 minutes.

2. Scramble eggs with a pinch of salt on med/high temperature on a lightly buttered skillet pan.

3. Assemble the bear in a blanket: Place about 1/2 cup of rice in the middle of the plate to form the bear’s body. Then scoop a medium size ball of rice to form the head. To form the bear’s ears, use a small amount of rice by shaping it like a half circle. Place the omelet on top of the bear’s body to form the blanket. Attach the olive and cheese slivers to form his ears, nose and eyes.
