Copycat Take Out Fried Rice

I love a theme night, so if I’m going to commit to a theme, I’m going all out. And that means I’m going to get fancy and have fried rice. And this fried rice right here? It’s perfect.

Servings 6 people


  • 3 cups white rice leftover works best
  • 2 tbsp butter divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 sweet onion small dice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp teriyaki
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat wok or skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan and scramble eggs. Once scrambled, set aside.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of butter to the pan. Add onions and garlic. Sauté until translucent and softened.
  • Add frozen peas and carrots to onions and garlic. Cook the carrots and peas with the onions until softened, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Add rice and stir to combine.
  • Stir in soy sauce and teriyaki sauce.
  • Add eggs and scallions to rice mixture.
  • Allow the rice to heat through, stirring occasionally. Extra bonus if you can handle letting it sit long enough to get roasty toasty and become fried.
  • Once rice is warmed through and "fried," remove from the heat and drizzle sesame oil over rice; stir to mix it in.
  • Serve immediately.
