Verginia's Fried Rice

Sue Fitzpatrick


Courtesy of my Mother-in-Law, this recipe is for a large pan or casserole dish for a party, but you can scale down for a home meal, or not. Leftovers are always good!

Whenever she comes over I get her to bring a batch. She knows our son doesn't like peas, so there's always a portion without them :)

The best fried rice I've ever eaten (including Chinese take-out).
