Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Hot Dog Fried Rice)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today I bring you a somewhat interesting recipe that, believe it or not, comes from Katie Lee of the show “The Kitchen” on Food Network. At first when I saw this recipe I thought, “Hot dogs in fried rice? Are you serious?” There are so many different, better, proteins that you could use in fried rice instead. However, I am a bit adventurous and I figured if it’s on Food Network it can’t be all that bad. This actually works and tastes pretty dang good. Of course I’m not saying that I would choose hot dog if I had both hot dog and chicken in the house but in a pinch, this works and turns out very nice plus I could see this as a great way to get your kids to eat fried rice. The egg on top is a nice touch with this dish also. I usually make fried rice the traditional way where you scramble the egg into the fried rice but I think I might start serving an egg of top of mine from now on. Give this recipe a try and let me know in the comments below what you think about hot dogs in fried rice.
