Homemade Fried Rice is easy to make make and perfect for using up leftovers!
I love fried rice and every time we eat out at a Chinese restaurant you can bet I’m going to order a side of fried rice to go with my main course. Even my kids love fried rice so we love sharing it whenever we eat out. Sometimes I want fried rice but I don’t feel like eating out or we just don’t have the money to do so. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own. I was amazed at how easy it is and delicious it tastes! Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy eating out but making homemade fried rice takes only minutes and I often have frozen peas, carrots and eggs on hand.
During our weeknight meals we often serve white rice as a side dish. My family loves eating chicken, rice and gravy and my kids will just eat plain cooked rice if you let them. I always make at least 3-4 cups of rice and simply store it in the fridge as leftovers. Rice is inexpensive and so easy to make and I always have a bag in the pantry. And even though my husband and I have started following the Keto lifestyle, it’s ok to have the occasional cheat day.
