Turkey Fried Rice

adapted from Joy of Cooking

1 package (approx. 1 1/3 lb) ground turkey
4 eggs
salt and pepper
3 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
3 to 4 cups cold, cooked rice (1 to 1 1/3 cups uncooked)
1 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallion
soy sauce, to taste

Brown ground turkey in large skillet over medium-high heat. When browned, set aside and wipe out pan with a paper towel. 

Turn the heat down to medium. Whisk together the eggs with salt and pepper. Add a tablespoon of the oil to coat the pan. Add the eggs all at once. As they set, push the edges toward the center and tilt the skillet to redistribute the uncooked egg. When completely set, break the egg into clumps and remove to a bowl. 

Heat the remaining two tablespoons of oil in the same skillet. Add the rice and the ginger, stirring to cook the rice in the oil, about 3 minutes. Add the ground turkey and the eggs to the rice mixture, then turn off the heat and add the scallions. Serve with soy sauce for drizzling.
