Fried rice has been a staple item in my household for many years. It is something that my grandma cooked long ago when she did not know what to serve us for lunch and something my mom also made when she was stumped for a good dinner. They also made this regularly due to the fact that they could use up leftover rice, eggs and any protein that was left lying around in the fridge. They really hated letting anything go to waste so this was the best option next to throwing it all away!
Nowadays, I find myself making the same thing they used to do. Whether I am stumped for a new recipe to cook up for dinner, am being lazy and do not want to spend a long time cooking over the stove or just want to use up leftovers, I know I can count on this recipe to get me a good, nutritious and delicious meal on my table in no time. This dish is one of my husband’s new favorites as well and now I do not make it only when I have leftovers, but when he really craves it. It is yummy and fun to eat all in one bowl!
