When I was a kid, my dad would always use the leftover rice from dinner the night before and turn it into a delicious breakfast! I know that may seem so weird to you, but it was a cheap and yummy way to have breakfast and not waste food. I decided to put a little spin on his creation and make this easy Dulce de Leche Rice Cereal using La Lechera Dulce de Leche!
All you do for this recipe put leftover rice in a bowl, heat up some milk and pour it over. Top it with Dulce de Leche and a little bit of butter and yum– breakfast is served!
The warm milk saturates the rice and warms it along with the butter and Dulce de Leche. It gives it the perfect amount of sweetness that allows you to really enjoy this breakfast dish! You could also add bananas or other fruit to the bowl that would compliment the dulce de leche, if you want. I am just fine with it being plain and simple!
The video above shows you how simple this dish is to make! I love that it helps with waste, as I know sometimes rice is a bear to keep as a leftover and reheat. This is the perfect way to keep it from being tossed!
