Fried rice with sunny-side-up egg topped with crisped ginger and garlic is a simple yet elegant recipe for a weekday meal.

Yield:  2 servings

Ingredients For the toasted ginger and garlic topping:
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • Salt
  • 2 cups day old cooked rice
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 cup onion finely chopped (or other vegetables you have on hand such as peppers, celery, carrots)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
Eggs in a basket

In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the peanut oil.  Add in the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally until it is crisp and brown.  Transfer to a plate with a paper towel and salt lightly.  Let it cool. 

In a large skillet, heat on medium and add vegetables.  Cook for 5-10 minutes until tender, stirring occasionally.  

Add the rice and cook stirring well until heated through.  Season to taste with salt.  

In a nonstick skillet, fry eggs in 1 tablespoon peanut oil, sunny-side-up, until edges are set but yolk is still runny.  

Divide rice among 2 plates. Top each with an egg and drizzle with a little sesame oil and soy sauce. 

Sprinkle with the crisped garlic and ginger over everything and enjoy!
