I found this to be an easy to prepare fried rice that went well with Vietnamese Spring Rolls that my wife made. I will, in the future, back off or even eliminate the celery or, perhaps better yet, chop it even finer (I had about 1/8" x 1/8" x 1/8" pieces this time). I think some chopped sugar pea pods would also go rather well with this dish. This dish will be welcome to return to my table.

Easy, tasty recipe! I cut it in half cause I only had 1 1/2 cups of rice. Used 1 egg instead of 1 1/2. Only had a few slices of onion so I added a couple diced garlic cloves. Used canned peas (recommend sticking with the frozen - canned too mushy). Also added diced precooked bacon. This recipe is very adaptable as far as ingredients. It's a definite keeper. Thanks Mona.

This was an excellent recipe. It was my first attempt to make fried rice, but won't be my last. I used between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of soy sauce. I also forgot the celery. It still turned out to be the perfect rice for our chinese meal. I can't wait to make it again.

Just what I was hoping to find - I, too have had bad experiences with fried rice in the past. This turned out quite well, I did cut the butter in half, and then added two Tbsp. olive oil for cooking the eggs. I didn't have any peas or celery, but it still tasted as close as I've ever come to restaurant flavor. Next time I think I'll use chives at the end, too. Thanks so much!

Very good and Very easy! I love to make this the day after we have had pan fried (not breaded) pork chops. I always make sure to have a couple chops left over that I can finely dice and add to the fried rice. I don't use as much butter or soy sauce though and last time realized too late that I didn't have any celery but it still came out great! Thanks for sharing , it has become a family favorite!!!

This is a really nice fried rice recipe. I used frozen mixed vegetables, a splash of seasame oil and cooked diced bacon. I used less butter, about 4 T. and 2(- or +) oz of soy sauce. Turned out great. I served this with jerked chicken and everyone loved it. Thanks for a great recipe. It's a keeper and so easy1

We *really* liked this. My three year old could not stop eating the stuff! I just added a bit of seasame seed oil for flavor and let out the celery. I'll be making this again! Thank you for posting!
