Sausage Fried Rice

I love this recipe! It makes a bunch too.

5 cups cold cooked rice (might need 6 cups)
1 pound bulk sausage spicy or mild
1 package cole slaw mix containing both the shredded cabbage and carrots or make your own
1/4 cup Soy sauce (may be more adjust to taste)
1 10 oz can bean sprouts drained
1 small bag frozen peas
4 or 5 eggs scrambled
3 stalks green onion using both the green and white part

Important: Do not use freshly made hot rice or the fried rice will turn out gummy. Cold leftover rice works perfect.

Brown the sausage, scramble the eggs and chopped the green onions before getting started on mixing the rice and other ingredients. Once this is done, get a large nonstick frying pan or electric skillet and coat it with olive oil.

Stir fry the cole slaw mix just until the cabbage is tender. Depending on the size of the frying pan, you might want to make the fried rice in two batches. If you do this, remove half of the stir fried cole slaw mix from the frying pan and use half of the following approximate amounts.

Add cold rice. Add some soy sauce to help break the rice upand give it some color, add browned sausage and mix well. Once the rice is broken up and well mixed, add the bean sprouts and frozen peas.

Mix well then add the scrambled eggs. Mix everything well and make sure the eggs are broken up and not in big chunks.

Season with pepper, as needed. Add more soy sauce until it tastes the way you want it to. The last thing you put in is the green onions. Add the chopped green onions and mix well.
