    For the more health minded among us, coating and baking in the oven is "oven frying". Sometimes a bit of butter or oil can be used in the baking.

    When I was in Ecuador everything had to be made from scratch, and I made English muffins - I wasn't sure if the fact that they tasted just like store-bought was a good thing or not!

    Why the Cayenne Pepper? I get the rest of the list but curious about the pepper.

    I did the same thing. It was a surprisingly complicated recipe and it tasted exactly like chees-its when done.

    Does anyone have any good ideas on how to liven up brown rice?

    I have a recipe for fried rice that I always use brown rice in, it's got bacon in it so not the most healthy thing in my cookbook, but it's really good and easy to make. It's more of a use-up-the-leftover-brown rice kind of thing. I can post it if you're interested.

    Marleybone, I'm willing to try anything at this point - and in our house, we substitute turkey bacon when we want to be healthy.

    We tried turkey bacon some time ago (we usually fix bacon and eggs for breakfast on Sundays), and I liked it better than "the real thing". Also, I quite like ground turkey for tacos.
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.

    OK, here ya go...

    FRIED RICE

    2 cups cooked brown rice. Cook the rice the day before if possible, I don't know why but it's better that way.
    4-5 slices bacon
    3-4 eggs, slightly beaten
    3-4 chopped green onions
    chopped pork, ham, beef, chicken.. whatever you can find leftover in the fridge.
    (it's not in the recipe but I like to throw in some frozen peas)

    Cut bacon into pieces and fry in heavy skillet until crisp. Remove bacon and turn down the heat. Pour eggs into hot bacon drippings. Add rice and green onions (and peas if desired). Mix together and add the leftover meat. Add soy sauce to taste, then cook and stir on low heat for 15-20 minutes.

    This is even better the next day after you make it.
