Fried Rice Grandma Lou Style

Although I was never much of a fried rice fan growing up, this recipe has become one of my favorites recently. It is so fast and easy and a great way to take boring rice and make it something delish! I love to serve it with the orange chicken curry, but it would be great with just about anything.

2 eggs slightly beathn
4 Tablespoons oil (divided)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
4 cups COLD cooked rice
1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce (or a little more to taste)

Scramble eggs slightly in 1 Tablsp oil. Remove from pan and set aside. Heat remaining oil and add green onions, mixing a few times. Ad rice and fry a few minutes, mixing well. Add sugar and soy sauce (more soy sauce may be added to taste) Stire well. Then add eggs and break into small pieces while mixing.

serves 4-6


Be sure your rice is REALLY COLD. I make mine (just the boil in the bag kind) in the morning and then leave it in the fridge all day long so it is ready for dinner. You can also do half brown rice and half white rice to make this dish a little healthier. Either way it is a great side dish!
