Another Notch Fried Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mermaidmagic

This is another recipe from my children's cookbook, "Emeril's There's A Chef In My Soup!" Prep time does not reflect time to cool rice. Serves 8 to 12

Very good! I scaled this down to 2 servings and enjoyed every last bite. I didn't use the bean sprouts because I didn't have any. I also just cut the carrot in small chunks. Thanks!
