  1. This would be fun to serve up with chopsticks. I'm adding it to my menu! Thanks Susan & Jane!

  2. I adore fried rice but have never been very successful at making it at home - can't wait to try this recipe.

  3. Question - do you just use long grain rice or basmati or jasmine?

  4. We love fried rice and it is on the menu at least once a week, even better is trying different versions when we do have fried rice. I can't get over how many variations there actually is to how people have tweaked it. Thanks for your recipe to try.
