Fried rice with breakfast sausages and eggs galore. You’ll love the Asian flavors with a Western twist. This easy breakfast fried rice is ready in just 17 mins!


  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil such as grapeseed oil
  • 2 to 3 breakfast sausages or vegan breakfast sausages such as Beyond Sausage, chopped bite size
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cup day old, cooked, white rice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped


  1. In a large pan over medium heat, add the oil.
  2. When the oil is hot, add the breakfast sausages and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until they are cooked through. 
  3. Add the garlic and stir fry for 1 minute, until the garlic is fragrant.
  4. Add the rice and gently break it up in the pan until it’s easy to stir fry. Add the soy sauce, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. 
  5. Lower the heat to low and push the rice to one side. Add the sesame oil to the empty side and add the whisked eggs.
  6. Gently move the eggs around to scramble them and when they are about 80% cooked, fold them into the rice. 
  7. Turn the heat off and serve the rice topped with scallions.
