Fried rice is a stir-fried dish using leftover or cooked rice. It is commonly mixed with meats, vegetables, dairy products, and condiments. This dish originated in China during the Sui dynasty. The most famous Chinese fried rice dish, Yang Chow, derives its name from Yangzhou, the city where the first-ever fried rice was prepared.

I love eating fried rice for breakfast. The recipe below is one of my favorite breakfast recipes, and it boasts the outstanding flavors of cheese and garlic. Follow the recipe below to discover how easy it is to prepare. Enjoy!

Tips and Techniques

  • Use the leftover oil from our homemade crispy fried garlic bits to make the fried rice more flavorful.
  • Use any type of cheese you prefer.
  • Replace hot dog with any type of sausage.
  • Do not overcook the egg so some will coat the rice after mixing.
  • Make sure to use at least a day-old fluffy rice. Day-old rice has already released most of its moisture, which makes it perfect in making fried rice.

      Hello Liz,

      All you need to do is put enough oil into the pan. Then make sure to mix it constantly. I hope you try my fried rice recipe! Cheers!

      Another very tasty dish. I just wish I could prevent ghe rice from sticking to the pan when I fry it.

      Hi Pamela,

      You may do so if you want to avoid the strong taste of the garlic. I love garlic that's why I prefer to add more garlic whenever I make my garlic fried rice. Have a wonderful day!

      This breakfast dish sounds good although I might use a bit less garlic. I would really like to try it. Thanks for a good idea.
