Start by making garlic fried rice with AJI-SHIO® Garlic Seasoning Mix . Set your fried rice aside while we fry up our eggs and longganisa. Boil your longganisa in a pan and wait for the water to dry up and let the longganisa continue cooking in its own fat. Once it’s cooked, take it out of the pan, and fry your eggs. Time to assemble!

On a plate, put in some garlic fried rice, longganisa, and eggs. Add in slices of tomatoes to keep the meal balanced, then serve!
