Asian food is one of my husband's favorite. We usually eat it twice a month. It can be kind of pricey eating out, so I try to make our favorites at home. Easy Fried Rice is one of the dishes I have started making. It is as simple as it looks at an open grill in the Asian restaurants. Start off with cooked rice and go from there adding what you want. I usually cook the egg first in sesame oil and then add the cooked rice and vegetables. This recipe is a simple and a basic one, but on occasion I dress it up with adding cooked shrimp, chicken, or pork. Delish!
This Easy Fried Rice goes well with these other Asian dishes I like to make---- Sweet and Sour Pork, Sesame Noodles, Thai Style Stir Fried Chicken, Sesame Chicken, Pepper Steak, Mandarin Chicken, and Chinese Style Chop Suey. As you can see, Asian food is a favorite around our house!

In a large skillet heat sesame oil until hot but not smoking. Turn heat down to medium and add eggs. Cook eggs stirring constantly breaking up the egg into small pieces.
Add onions and saute until slightly cooked. Add frozen peas and carrots, stirring and incorporating eggs and onions until all ingredients are mixed.
