Shrimp Fried Rice

This is a really tasty recipe we’ve been making these past few months.  I was trying to think of a way to sneak more eggs into my little guy since he won’t eat them on his own!  I merged a few recipes together to come up with this recipe… it’s a crowd pleaser in our fam. :)  If you don’t like shrimp, you can use something else or leave the meat out all together.

  6. Add rice and stir to coat.
  7. Push rice mixture to side of the skillet and add eggs to the other side and cook, stirring and working into rice mixture, 1-2 minutes.

I buy cooked shrimp because I think they are deveined better! But if you are starting with raw shrimp, cook those first, transfer to a plate, and then proceed with the recipe.

Enjoy!
