It’s Sunday … this means a few things … we’ve survived the kids for the weekend, it’s bath night, and we want something quick and simple for dinner. Enter my patent pending egg fried rice.
This is a rather quick dish, very tasty and rather filling. You can add some extras if you like … we added some store bought goyzas at the end. We’ve added in some Teryaki fried cabbage in the past as well which works rather nicely.
You don’t need a lot of ingredients.
Frozen peas (200+ grammes) to the rescue again.
Rice 200 grammes
Bacon Bits!!! (only used half so 100 grammes .. you could also use rashers)
Get your peas and your rice on as really the meal is waiting on them to cook for 10 or 12 minutes depending on your rice.
Beat 2 eggs (in a cup) … take a large frying pan (everything will be going into it) and get it quite hot and put in a dash of sesame seed oil. Throw in your beaten egg and try to get it nice and flat and round. Drop the heat as you don’t want to burn it.
You’ll end up with something like
Roll it onto a chopping board
What do you do on a chopping board … you chop it up into small pieces
In the same pan ( as it’s got a nice taste of sesame seed oil and fried egg ) throw in your bacon bits. Don’t worry too much about all the fat. It’s going to melt.
and you’ll end up with …
In my case I’ve cooked up some basmati rice and it’ll end up nice and fluffy
Throw everything into the frying pan. (Don’t forget to drain the rice if you’ve got too much water and the cooked peas)
Throw in a splash of soya sauce as well (Not too much as there’s already quite a bit of salt in there and people can add their own) and you’ll end up with …
We’ve discovered a few Asian shops in Nantes so we’ve picked up some Goyza.
Fry them ..
boil in a splash of water cover and you’ll end up with …
You’re done add to a plate while trying to make it look pretty for potential photos and instagram posts 😛
Serve it with some Soya Sauce … and I rather like a nice spicey chilli sauce with it too.
Putting this all together takes about 15 minutes .. the time to boil the kettle get the peas and rice on and mix it all together when those are cooked. It’s a firm favourite chez nous.
