Fried Rice with Egg and Chinese Sausage (Lap Cheong)

Fried Rice with Egg and Chinese Sausage

This is for Bella Tigre aka E from Turin.

A simple Fried Rice with Egg and Chinese Sausage. I had leftover rice from the day before's curry and was wondering what to do with it, when I spotted my whole dozen of Lim Chee Guan sausages hanging in the kitchen...

2 cups cold cooked Jasmin or Basmati Rice
1-2 top quality Chinese sausages
1-2 Eggs
1 clove Garlic
Half an Onion
Vegetable Oil
A few drops of Sesame Oil (optional)

If you use a non-stick wok like me, just heat up the wok (medium to high) and add in the Chinese sausages (finely sliced), garlic and onion (diced).

A little oil will start coming out of the sausages and the garlic and onion will start to smell fragrant.

When everything's almost cooked, add in the cold cooked rice. Fried rice is not fried rice without some oil so dribble a little over the rice. Push everything aside and heat up a little more oil for the salted and beaten egg(s). When it's almost cooked, break it up and mix it well with the rice etc. Add in salt and pepper to taste.

If you wish add in a few drops of sesame oil before serving. The grains of rice should be intact and al dente, not soggy.

Thanks S! I usually add some veges like peas or carrots to my fried rice and I also don't add garlic but I'll give your recipe a try since mine have 6 out of 10 times turned out so so. And yes, I'll also remember to add more salt and oil.

Grazie di nuovo cara. Un abbraccio forte.

E, fried rice is basically putting leftover rice to good use so you can do whatever you want with it!

When I do a Cantonese-style fried rice, I add in peas and carrots, shrimps and ham. Yangchou-style and you use char siu and spring onions, for example.

And if you like ginger fried rice, well, loads of ginger, garlic and sesame oil!

And if you want it nice and smooth like in the restaurants, use more oil (aye aye).

I like mine simple as lap cheong has a strong taste already. And less oil wherever possible since I'm so fat.

I have seen sambal fried rice in some zi char stores here, if you have sambal, you may want to try when hubby is not around hehe. I also like fried rice with ikan bilis.

I love fried rice with salted fish and bean sprouts, I've done sambal fried rice (but without the belachan) and also fried rice with ikan bilis :-).

Pity the Hub said we should go on a low-Carbo diet. I could just eat rice and noodles and be happy with nothing else.
