Sheet Pan Fried Rice with Shrimp

On the menu tonight – Sheet Pan Fried Rice with Shrimp!

We order Chinese food at least once a month, sometimes more, and every time we have leftover rice. I’ve done a bunch of things with that leftover rice, but this definitely my favorite use!

Take the containers of rice, dump them in a large mixing bowl along with the ingredients in the recipe and mix thoroughly. Spread the mixture on a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off, scrape the rice mixture from the sheet pan and mix it up. Pour in the scrambled eggs, mix it all up again, and bake another 5-10 minutes.

In this version, I added shrimp. Once finished, chop the shrimp into bite sized pieces. Garnish with scallions and serve with your entree of choice or it can stand alone as a meal. It’s a simple recipe, but one that you’ll want to have in your arsenal.
