This was my go-to meal when I was first married & still in college. Now it's my grandchildren's favorite. Some things stay the same - I use Olive Oil, green onions, and diagonally sliced carrots. After that, it depends on what I have in the frig. Meatless is fine! Experiment, and see how your family likes it. It is a one-dish meal - we serve it in the skillet, so it's easy to clean up too.

Chicken goes well in this, or tender meats - you don't want to have something chewy. That last half cup of green beans, the single stalk of celery - this will use all of them up.

How to Make Egg Fried Rice


  • 1Beat the eggs until well blended. Set aside.
  • 2Heat a skillet and add the olive oil. Immediately add the sliced carrots.
  • 3Stir-fry (stir it around with a wooden spoon while it cooks) for a minute.
  • 4Make a hole in the center, and add the green onions and garlic chives. Stir fry another minute.
  • 5Make another hole, add some olive oil, and add 1 cup of the leftovers. (Can be veggies, meat, etc.)
    Repeat until they are all in the skillet.
  • 6Add the rice, and mix until well blended.
  • 7Make a large hole in the center, add olive oil, and pour in the eggs. Do NOT touch them for a minute - you want them to start to set.
  • 8Using the wooden spoon (or chopsticks) drag the egg through the rice. You will see streaks of egg.
  • 9Sprinkle with soy sauce while the egg finishes cooking. Serve hot.
