HOW TO MAKE THIS BETTER THAN TAKE-OUT FRIED RICE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Prepare your rice according to package directions. Set aside.

PRO TIP: This is a handy recipe if you happen to have rice leftover from another meal as well.

STEP TWO: In a large skillet or wok, heat sesame oil over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 2 to 3 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally to keep the garlic from burning. Add peas and carrots and cook until partially thawed, 1 to 2 minutes. You’ll need to adjust this time if you use fresh veggies.

PRO TIP: One of the secrets of delicious fried rice is a nice hot wok and plenty of oil so that your veggies don’t burn to the bottom.

STEP FOUR: Reduce heat and push the rice to the sides of the pan, making a hole in the center of the pan for the eggs. Crack eggs into the bottom of the pan.
