Easy Bacon Fried Rice


This is a bacon 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.

  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 cup frozen French-cut green beans, thawed

  • ½ onion, roughly chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 3 cups cold cooked rice

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or more to taste


  1. 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. Sauté until bacon is crisp and green beans and onions are softened, about 3 minutes.

  2. 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.

  3. Mix in rice. Stir in soy sauce until rice is evenly coated. Cook until rice is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
