Fried rice with lap cheong sausage


I’m a big fan of fried rices. Its a great way to use up any left over rice and vegetables you have left in the fridge. It’s great as a meal on its own or as a side dish. You can add what ever you want in there and the choices are endless. There are no golden rules to it, but I have to admit I always add eggs to mine.  For best results you should use day old rice from the fridge, but it will still work with freshly cooked rice.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is a family favourite and is my go to meal when I’m feeling lazy. It doesn’t have much ingredients but the ones we are using will add a punch of flavour.  The hero of this dish is the Chinese sausage. In Vietnamese we call it lạp xưởngThe sausage is quite fatty and little salty and very delicious. You don’t need a tone of them to add a load of flavour to your fried rice, but I won’t blame you if you do.

    Thank you for sharing your story and recipe 👍

    Fried rice is my lazy meal. I tend to cook a bit more rice and keep it in fridge to cater for urgent need.

    Mine could be as simple as egg and scallion. Yet, it’s very flavorful and taste heavenly 😋
