Quick and Easy Fried Rice


Last night Bryant made spicy teriyaki glazed wings on the Traeger and what else goes with that other than fried rice? I’ll be sharing a wing recipe at some point because we make them often on the Traeger in lots of different varieties depending on what we are feeling like- one of my faves is the Parmesan garlic!

I’ve been making fried rice for years because it’s super simple, doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and it’s yummy! I cracked the consistency code last night though and I’m really happy about it going further when I make it again. In the past I had done the egg last because that is how I had seen it done at Hibachi restaurants. That always caused the rice to get too gummy and thick. So follow the recipe below and it will turn out With a great consistency and a little bit of crunch! The best part is you might have all of these ingredients at your house right now!

**You can choose any frozen veggie combo, but this one is closest to how they serve it at Chinese food restaurants. **
