Also called "Recycled" by my family as we literally do a refridgerator raid for left over everything and anything we can put in a skillet and fry together. This recipe scales up easily and quickly, but simply adding more rice to help keep things in relative proportion with each other. The measurements are also 'fluid' in that if you have (or would like) more of a certain type of item (meat or veggies) then toss more into the pot. :) It's very forgiving in that regard. Please enjoy and let me know how you changed this recipe for your family!

PS: Left over Mac'n Cheese doesn't do to well in this dish as when recooked, the macaroni gets a bit mushy. *^^*
