This was really good and very easy to make. It reminded

me of Fried Rice when I added peas.

This was another winner - yummy and fast!!  Honestly I had never made bulger like this -- being the star ingredient in a recipe.  Everyone loved it, including my 2 year old who kept eating and eating and eating.  I was a bit in shock, happy shock!  Another commentor mentioned it was like fried rice which made me think I could likley make this into a main dish next time by adding stir fried tofu and some scrambled eggs!
