Smiley Breakfast Porridge - Disney's Mulan Recipe

In Disney’s Mulan, there’s a cute scene where Mushu wakes up Mulan for her first day of training. He’s made porridge for her, and he even arranged the bacon and eggs to form a smiley face. Cute!

While researching Chinese rice porridge, I came across several recipes for what’s called congee. It’s a savory porridge made of rice that has been boiled in a lot of water until it is soft and mushy. It was really simple to make. I’ll show you how!

Smiley Breakfast Porridge – Disney’s Mulan Recipe


  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 slice of bacon
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Mix together the rice and water in a pot on the stove. I know this may seem like way too much water, but this porridge is supposed to be mushy.
  2. Bring the water and rice mixture to simmering, and simmer it for about 1 1/2 hours, or until it reaches the desired consistency. Make sure the rice doesn’t boil.
  3. In a separate pan, fry two eggs and one piece of bacon. Fold the bacon over into a smiley shape as it cooks.
  4. Transfer the porridge to a bowl, and place the eggs and bacon on top of it in the form of a smiley face.
  5. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto the eggs and porridge as desired.

This recipe is super simple, but it makes sure that your morning is a happy one!
