"The best homemade fried rice you can make! The bacon may be non-traditional, but it adds a little extra CRUNCH. Great with chicken or beef."

  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 with the eggs, in order to cook them evenly; cook for about 3 minutes. Flip the eggs, cook one minute more and remove them to a cool surface. Let them cool, then cut them into thin slices. Set aside.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  4. Spoon remaining 2 teaspoons oil into the skillet with the bacon fat. Stir in 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.

Everyone loves this fried rice. It is very important that you use cold white rice so the rice doesn't get mushy when you fry it. Also, I add some rice vinegar and sesame oil to the side of the ...

This was easy. I altered it a bit. Next time I will add some carrot, red bell pepper and mushrooms.

I had one of those frozen Beef and Broccoli bags for dinner, but thought it wouldn't be enough to feed a family of five so I thought I would make this fried rice and add to it. I did not have b...

Good basic recipe. Great way to use up leftover meat and vegetables of any kind. I use 2 eggs and season them with a little soy sauce instead of salt & pepper. I only use 3 strips bacon, dice...

We disagree with most other reviewers -- we didn't like this at all. We did omit the bacon, but I don't think it would've helped much to keep it. The soy sauce flavor was too strong, and there...
