Yummy Fried Rice

My little girl loves this yummy fried rice. Paired with her all-time favorite boiled egg, she always ends up finishing her meal. And even asks for more. Good girl. :-)
It's also a good way for you to make use of your left-over rice the night before. A tip to avoid rice from sticking each other forming lumps, sprinkle a little water and using your hand, squeeze rice until grains separate. I used a sweet corn-flavored hotdog on this one and found out that it tastes yummier than the regular one. Its sweet smell adds a delicious twist to the rice.

4-5 cups cooked rice
2-3 pcs. hotdog, chopped into small pieces
1/2 pc. red or yellow pepper, chopped into small pieces
2-3 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, minced and sliced
2 tbsp. soy sauce
salt to taste
1. Heat oil in a pan or skillet. Sautee garlic until brownish in color.
2. Add rice and pan-fry for 2 minutes.
3. Add hotdog and pepper, follow soy sauce. Mix well.
4. Adjust taste, can add salt if preferred.
5. Serve warm.
