  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then tip in the egg. Leave to set for 30 secs-1 min, swirling every now and again, then tip it out and finely slice. Add bacon and mushrooms to pan, then fry until golden, about 3 mins. Add peas, garlic and ginger, then cook for 1 min.

  2. Mix the soy sauce and sugar together. Turn up the heat, add the cooked rice to the pan, heat through, then splash in the sweet soy sauce. Stir through the egg and serve straight away, with more soy sauce if you like.

Absolutely fantastic, added leftover chicken and a bit of extra soy sauce upon serving. Went down a treat with the whole family :o)

Instead of cooking the egg at the beginning, i drain the cooked rice and whilst still steaming hot, add a whisked egg and stir till the heat of the rice cooks it. Also used wholegrain rice instead of basmati - really yummy.

Really easy,really quick,and really tasty! Swapped mushrooms for broccoli and added an onion and some sweetcorn, now make this regularly for me and my wife. As good as any fried rice restaurant dish

Fantastic recipe. I used 4 rashers of chopped streaky bacon and light soy sauce because that's all I had. I used a full 250g pack of mushrooms, a finely sliced red chilli and 3 medium eggs as they needed using up. Rather than 'leftover' rice, I added a 250g pouch of Tilda pure basmati microwave rice. It really was lovely - I'm sure I'll make this again and again.

I used brown rice in an attempt to be a little healthier, and added an onion and some quartered cherry tomatoes for more crunch and colour. I also doubled the soy and sugar and added a few drops of sesame oil. A very nice side dish to the chinese ribs recipe along with a corn on the cob. Much better than from the takeaway!

Great alternative to a takeaway. I used smoked bacon and spring onions to give some more flavour, and I didn't use the sugar - don't feel it needs it.

This is a very tasty, easy meal to cook. I also added cooked chicken and to flavour the rice i added a knorr chicken stock pot to the water while cooking.

Quick and easy mid week supper. I've made it a few times and just used up whatever veg was in the fridge/freezer. Cashews liven it up a bit.

I made it with chicken and smoked bacon, but used about half the amount of rice because that would have been way too much for me. Definitely looking forward to experimenting and adding onions etc in future attempts

Amazing, quickly ended up being all time favourite. However, I also add a bit of coriander and Chinese 5 spice, and it's even better. Lovely!
