Last night I was running very late getting home and of course keeping with our no eating out had to make dinner. I had purchased some frozen egg rolls from Sam’s Club that I decided I was going to stick in the oven to have for a quick and easy dinner. I really wanted to serve fried rice with dinner, but I figured it would be too much trouble or I wouldn’t have everything I needed. To my surprised I had just about everything. With a little modification of the original recipe I was able to whip up this recipe in just a matter of minutes.
I actually had left over brown right in the refrigerator which never happens except a few days ago I didn’t think I made enough so I made more and actually ended up making too much so that worked out. I had everything else I needed on hand that I wanted to use. The original recipe calls for meat, but I just wanted vegetable fried rice so with a little modification I was able to serve this with the egg rolls.
I must say it turned out fantastic! Much better than the fried rice I pay $5 for at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I will never buy fried rice again after making this recipe! Yummy!
