CONGEE INSPIRED BY MULAN

Picture for Congee inspired by Mulan

6,329,610 views  I was gonna hold off on making this episode until the new live-action Mulan came out, but principal photography hasn't even started yet, and it's expected to come out in 2020. So as I slowly recover from Vidcon, join me as I make one of the simplest and most essential dishes in our illustrious human history: porridge. Specifically, porridge made from rice, topped with a smiley face bacon-and-eggs affair. Leave it to Mushu.

Fry up bacon and set aside. In the same pan, fry sunny side up eggs.

3 slices bacon

2 eggs

5.

Add the rice cooked in chicken stock to a bowl and use the bacon and eggs to make a face on top of the rice. Use the shiitake mushrooms for the eyebrows, black sesame seeds for the pupils, the fried garlic and shallots for the hair, the chopped green onion for the beard, some slices of ginger for the ears, a fried piece of garlic for the nose, and sriracha for the acne. (Be creative and use whatever you’d like to make the face!)
