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


  1. Beat the eggs until well blended. Set aside.
  2. Heat a skillet and add the olive oil. Immediately add the sliced carrots.
  3. Stir-fry (stir it around with a wooden spoon while it cooks) for a minute.
  4. Make a hole in the center, and add the green onions and garlic chives. Stir fry another minute.
  5. Make 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.
  6. Add the rice, and mix until well blended.
  7. Make 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.
  8. Using the wooden spoon (or chopsticks) drag the egg through the rice. You will see streaks of egg.
  9. Sprinkle with soy sauce while the egg finishes cooking. Serve hot.
