Bacon Fried Rice is easy to make with simple ingredients and in minutes. It’s a hearty and tasty one-pot dish that’s perfect for breakfast or anytime you need a quick meal.
I came home late today from running errands and after a mad search of the fridge, only a pound of bacon rashers and days-old leftover rice presented possibilities for a fast meal. I was famished, they had to do.
I gave them a quick work in the wok and presto! An awesome one-bowl comfort food studded with smoky bacon goodness. I guess it proves to show the simple things are indeed some of the best things in life.
What you’ll need
This stir-fried rice is a clean-your-fridge kind of recipe. I used bacon and eggs for the protein and onions, garlic, and scallions for color and boost of flavor, but feel free to add whatever odds and ends you have on hand to make the dish more substantial.
Some good vegetables you can use are frozen peas and carrots, cut corn, diced bell peppers, or mushrooms. If you want to bulk up the protein, you can also add diced Spam or ham, shrimp, or chicken.
