Italian Sausage Fried Rice

Italian Sausage Fried RiceWhen it comes to breakfast nothing beats fried rice that’s a meal in itself. It’s a comfort food that I can honestly eat any time of the day. This version of fried rice has all the goodness of meat and vegetables that is light but filling. It’s not greasy or overly salty like most takeout fried rice. I use Italian sausage which adds another layer of unique flavor to this traditional Asian dish.
