This is a fried rice recipe that I luckily created from practically threadbare cabinets one evening. It's the epitome of comfort food and is a breeze to make. The green beans really complement the flavors but feel free to use any veggie you have on hand. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until just beginning to brown, about 7 minutes. Drain all but 1 to 2 teaspoons of bacon grease from the skillet. Add green beans, onion, and garlic; saute until bacon is crisp and green beans and onions are softened, about 3 minutes.

  • Push bacon mixture to one side of the skillet; heat sesame oil on the empty side, about 30 seconds. Pour in egg; cook until just set, about 1 minute. Stir into bacon mixture to combine. Mix in rice. Stir in soy sauce, a tablespoon at a time, until rice is evenly coated. Cook until rice is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.

Absolutely fantastic. I noticed a lot of the other reviewers added veggies they had on hand. The recipe lends itself to all of it - whatever you choose. We live in TN where bacon is a God-given right! This recipe nails it all the way! Read More

Best fried rice I have ever made. I had 2 containers of left over Chinese white rice. I measured it out to 6 cups. I added 2 cups of frozen mixed vegies instead of just green beans. I also added 1 Tbs Rice Vinegar just before adding rice. It gave it a nice added flavor. Read More

I used Kraft Toasted Sesame dressing in place of the Sesame oil and soy sauce. Tasted amazing and was cheaper. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely make again! Read More

I used turkey bacon and added some peppers. Very good. Next time I'll try brown rice and cut bacon and veg's. into 1/2 in pieces. Corn and extra egg would be good too. Read More

I was a bit worried that it would be too much sesame oil (since it can have a really overpowering flavour) so I cut it down but I think you can use the amount in recipe without worrying!! I also doubled the veggies???? definitely a do again Read More
