My family loves Chinese take out but wow, it can be very expensive to feed my whole crew. Quite often we will just make our favorite take-out foods at home to save $$’s.

  1. Absolutely LOVE this recipe! I’m a sucker for take out fried rice and didn’t think it was possible to replicate at home, thankful I was wrong! :)

  2. We give in to the Chinese takeout urge pretty often here, so making our own fried rice would be a real saver! Thanks for sharing your recipe at Merry Monday!

      Hands down the best fried rice recipe I’ve found. The only thing I do different is scramble my eggs separate and add once the rice has been completely added. Keeps the eggs yellow and from absorbing so much soy sauce.
