  • 1 ⅓ cups uncooked white rice

  • 1 ⅔ cups water

  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided

  • ¼ pound bacon, cut into strips

  • cup soy sauce

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas, thawed

  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, season eggs with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in small frying pan. Pour in eggs. Coat the bottom of the pan evenly with eggs; cook for about 3 minutes. Flip eggs, cook 1 minute more, and transfer them to a cool surface. Let cool, then cut into thin slices. Set aside.

  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

  4. Spoon remaining 2 teaspoons oil into the skillet with the bacon fat. Stir in cooked rice; break up any clumps and toss to coat with oil. Stir in bacon, soy sauce, peas, eggs, and green onions. Stir and cook until heated through, approximately 3 minutes.
