  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over a medium heat.
  2. Add the ham and bacon.  Cook until the bacon has released about half of its fat.
  3. Add all of the vegetables and saute for about 5 minutes, or until the onions become translucent.
  4. Transfer the meat and vegetable mixture to a colander and drain off any fat.  Return the mixture to the pot.
  5. Add the vegetable stock, rice, and thyme.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and then cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until all of the stock is absorbed.
  6. Add salt and pepper to the finished rice to taste.  Transfer the rice mixture to an oven safe pan.  Top with the cheese and bake at 400 until the cheese is melted, about 6 minutes.
  7. While the cheese is melting, cook the eggs as desired (we went with sunny side up).  When the cheese is melted, remove the rice from the oven and top with the eggs.
  8. Eat and enjoy!

Minute® Rice is quick and easy to prepare and is a great pantry staple. In fact, you can always find several boxes in our pantry because we make it several times per week. Minute® Rice is definitely our go-to ingredient and it is something that my entire family loves.
