I make a silly version of fried rice from time to time just with leftover rice and eggs. Art mentioned that he occasionally gets breakfast fried rice at one of the airports he travels through and that inspired me to make this for us one lazy weekend morning. We both greatly enjoyed this as a breakfast but he requested that I add more veggies next time such as broccoli, peas, and red bell peppers. Definitely a nice bowl of yum to start a day with!
