This is my fried rice. It's a little different every time I make it. You can change out just about everything. You can also use pork, chicken, beef, spam, bacon... I sometimes add fish cake, slivered carrots, bean sprouts, chredded cabbage, peas...the list goes on. It's great for using up leftovers. Use left over rice if possible; freshly cooked rice tends to get a little mushy in this dish.
