It is hard to believe that there are some that do not like it, you can add your own flavorings, we put some soy sauce on it before we ate it, it was wonderful, cannot wait to eat more of it.

I liked this, but it didn't have the fried rice flavor I was looking for, so I added a mixture of soy sauce and water to it. Really like that addition; it bumped up the flavor. I liked that it used a bag of mixed veggies, that was perfect in it.

Really? It's a dead dish. Where's the flavor, the pizzazz, the tasre?

I was so hoping this was going to be a good recipe, however, I was greatly disappointed... It was extremely bland, which I should have expected since there was no seasoning other than salt and pepper. The only thing that gave this some flavor was the bacon... Will not make this recipe again.

AMAZING FLAVOR!!! So quick to make. I did pre-prep cooking the rice and bacon. I used chicken instead of shrimp only because that was what I had on hand, and precooked it. Whole family loved it. I can hardly wait to try it with the shrimp. It is definitely going on my favorites list!!

We had a school get-together representing different countries around the world. Our country was China so I fixed this fried rice and it went so fast. It was so good!! I'll be fixing this again!!

This recipe was easy! It's one of our favorite meals! We decided to omit the bacon and add just a touch of soy sauce to the mixture. It is also great topped with some chopped green onions

I really liked this. I used the California blend vegetables. I don't like shelling the shrimp, so I thought next time I might buy the already cooked shrimp. I buy the shrimp in the freezer section and divide up what I need for individual meals. If you have a family to feed this would not work. But because it is just me and my husband it is the easiest way.

Can this be made with frozen shrimp? I haven't made this yet, but I needed to rate it in order to submit a question. I'll pre-cook and use brown rice, and I'll also add one finely minced clove of garlic. I'll also sprinkle some fresh & finely chopped chives over the completed dish. So, can I make this with frozen shrimp?

I thought this would be too bland, but it's really very good! I paired it with store-bought spring rolls for a fast dinner.
