Using up leftovers from the fridge

When you are going on holiday you have to make sure there is no food going to waste in your fridge.
I had some cooked rice, 1 1/2 Bratwurst from a BBQ, some Pecorino cheese and half of a pot of double cream and an egg.

I just sauted some onions and garlic and cut the Bratwurst into slices. Making a sauce is important when you have dry cold rice sitting around.
This is some kind of midweek meal when all things combined make a tasty and fast meal and it is better then throwing food in the trash bin.

To bind everything grated cheese, egg and cream are needed. To spice it a little and bring a nice colour to the dish, I added some Ayvar and a couple of fresh herbs.

100 g cooked rice
2 cooked Bratwurst
2 spring onions
2 cloves of garlic
1 red chili
1 tbsp  olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 bunch chives
2 stalks of oregano
3 tsp Ayvar
1 egg
100 ml double cream
50 g grates Pecorino

Grate the cheese, peel and chop onions and garlic and chili. Bring together with some oil in a pan and saute until soft. Add the Bratwurst in rings and warm it up again.
Make the sauce and mix it with the rice into the pan.
Preheat the oven to 180 C, use an oven proof dish and fill the mix in. Grate some cheese on top and bake for 6 minutes.
