    Wonderful basic fried rice recipe. Always the option of adding the extra something you enjoy in fried rice.
    This is exactly how I make fried rice at home. So you know I love it.
    So easy. So good!
    Delicious, easy, and fast! I made it with the bacon and it is a new favorite in the household.
    Keeping it simple and good.
    my husband had three helpings......awesome dish...
    Very good taste. A little too much ginger for my taste but definitely a winner.
    They're serious when they tell you to make sure that the rice is all broken up before adding it to the pot- otherwise things burn as you try to break up all the pieces. Makes a huge amount of rice, good for leftovers!
    this is a great recipe to use up the leftover rice. simple and tasty. And I highly recommend buying the chinese sausage instead of regular bacon.
