Kielbasa Breakfast Fried Rice
Inspired by Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures
Makes 4 Servings
1 tsp + 1 tbsp olive oil
4 tablespoons soy sauce
8 oz. Jennie-o Lean Turkey Kielbasa cut into coins
90 grams (1/2 cup/2 servings) Trader Joe’s Jasmine rice cooked, boxed and refrigerated for at least 4 hours)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
Mix together 2 tablespoons of soy sauce with the eggs and beat well. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture to pan. Swirl and scrape egg to cook until almost solid; err on the side of not done because you will be adding this back to the pan later. Remove soft eggs from pan and set aside on a plate. Return pan to stove. Add 1 tbsp oil. Add rice and cook for 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until rice is starting to lightly brown. Add remaining 2 tbsp soy sauce and the rice vinegar. Stir for 1 minute. Then add egg back to the pan along with the meat. Cook for 4-5 minutes until meat is heated through.

Review: WOW. I was nervous about using on 2 servings of rice for 4 servings. I was concerned about using rice vinegar, as opposed to my normal stand-bys of garlic, ginger, onions and hot chile sauce. I was wrong - this was fabulous! Loved the consistency, how far the oil went to make it feel authentic, the spiciness of the kielbasa - forget just breakfast, this would work for any meal! It was ready in under 20, BUT that's only if you have rice already made (which we did) - so you would definitely have to plan ahead with this one so I won't be adding it to my quick recipes list because of that. However, if you have leftover rice you can make this in 15 minutes for sure!
