Beat the egg and sesame oil in a small bowl.
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok. Add the eggs and cook about 30 seconds while tilting and swirling and then break the eggs up into pieces.
Add the rice and cook, stirring every few seconds, until completely heated through, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the peas, green onions and bean sprouts and stir fry for about 3 minutes, turning constantly. Stir in the soy sauce well and serve.

I love turning leftovers into new meals in the following days, and this fried rice is one of my favourites! You can use any meat, veggies, and rice you have left over to make a new meal that tastes nothing like it used to. I used leftover ham and rice from Thanksgiving, and used up the rest of the veggies I had in the drawers.
We usually eat this as a main course, but it would also make a great side dish. We usually add Chinese BBQ pork, but it is a tasty vegetarian dish without it. My son requests Fried Rice often.

I recently just learned that when you make egg fried rice, you must add the egg first then the rice, anyone know why?
I dont do it that way. I sauté the rice first. I use a wok and push the rice out of the way. I then add the egg and then the peas
I do the eggs separately. Not sure why eggs with rice but maybe to save time? :)
Mostly because if you add the eggs after the rice (right in them) they will soak up the rice and make a terrible consistency. I did that with my ex boyfriend in college and we still joke about that to this very day!!!!!!!!!!
I don't put eggs in fried rice since I don't eat eggs.
