It is dinnertime & I don’t have anything planned. Let’s play a little game. What is in my fridge? We have thawed out ground turkey, leftover rice, 2 aging potatoes & a half of an onion that is getting ready to be trashed. Mmm mmm, sounds great doesn’t it? Nobody likes wasting food. My husband & I positively hate it. Some of our favorite meal creations come from simply cleaning out our fridge. The hubby asked me last week if I could make a batch of fried rice, so this seemed as good of a time as any since it requires day old rice & as luck would have it… This would not be our traditional fried rice though. This is our fried rice American style.
1/2 pound of ground turkey or any ground meat
2 cups of day old cooked rice
2 cups of cooked diced potatoes (2 small potatoes)
1/2 cup of chopped onion
Half a can of corn
2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce (as always I recommend Green Mountain or Maggi)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
Pepper to taste
Brown your ground meat until no longer pink, drain & place aside. Peel & cube the potatoes, throw in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes until cooked in the center and set aside. In a large skillet set to 350 or high heat, add the oil & onion. Cook the onion until tender & toss in rice & potatoes. Add 1 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce over the top & stir until rice & potatoes are browned. Pour in half the can of corn & stir for a couple of more minutes. Add the ground meat, the seasonings & the last tbsp of soy sauce. Stir for a few minutes more & then transfer to a serving dish. Keep the skillet on. In a small bowl beat the eggs. Add to the hot skillet & toss around quickly until the egg is just barely firm & cooked . Remove from heat & throw in the the rice mixture.
Stay tuned for more fun with leftovers.

Sounds yummy and I love making meals out of leftovers here, too. Big fan of that 🙂
They always seem to come out the best. My husband loved this one. He told me to blog it. Lol
YES! Leftover meals are the best. I haven’t quite tried this combination though! Definitely on my list!
Yup, my favorite too. Hubby loved it. He is a meat and potatoes guy, so this was right up his alley. He ate every last bite. There were no leftovers.
That looks so tasty!! I’m going to try this with shredded chicken :).
