recipe: mee goreng singapore dish
This recipe has been a family tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation. My grandfather and aunts grew up in Singapore and learned this recipe Growing up, I remember my mom making this for lunch on the weekends and I would look so forward to it. It is a real simple, easy quick dish to whip up, plus it is healthy and kids love it as well!

This meal can also be made with ground turkey, pork or chicken. I have always ate it with just vegetables but other family members have made it with meat and they have said it is delicious!!! I know it does not sound so appealing with lettuce, eggs and tomatoes as garnish but this unusual garnish makes the meal so scrumptious!!! This is such a yummy dish, that while I am writing this post I want to make this for dinner.
