Easy Chinese Egg Fried Rice

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ShowShanti

Something quick for breakfast using leftover rice from the night before. My Ayi (Chinese for "aunt," home help in China) taught me this easy recipe. I never realized until now how simple and tasty fried rice could be.

I have never thought of making fried rice for breakfast, but this was genius! Super easy, quick & delicious! I added some chopped up leftover ham with the rice and we all really enjoyed this dish. We'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing, ShowShanti! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :) http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
