Breakfast Fried Rice


This breakfast fried rice is a twist on bacon and eggs! My dad used to make this for me on Saturday mornings when I was a kid; it's an easy and tasty brunch option. You can substitute one bunch of broccoli for frozen peas if desired.

  • 4 cups water

  • 2 cups uncooked white rice

  • 6 slices bacon

  • 4 eggs, beaten

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce, divided


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, occasionally turning, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon slices to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and crumble into bite-size pieces; reserve rendered bacon fat in the skillet.

  3. Cook and stir eggs in the same skillet over medium heat until slightly set, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir yellow onion, peas, green onion, and 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce into eggs; cook and stir until yellow onion is translucent, about 5 minutes more. Reduce heat to low; stir rice, crumbled bacon, and remaining soy sauce into egg mixture until well-combined and heated through, 1 to 3 minutes.
