We always have leftover fried rice when we order take-out Chinese. I prepared this with ginger the next day to use the rice and we loved it. Serve with soy sauce.

  • While bacon is cooling, cook and stir rice in the same skillet with bacon drippings, ground ginger, and fresh ginger over medium heat until rice is hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in green onion.

  • Heat a small skillet over medium heat until warm; add butter and melt, being careful not to brown the butter. Add eggs, salt, and pepper; scramble until eggs are set but still moist, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir scrambled eggs into hot fried rice until eggs are broken into small pieces. Add crumbled bacon and mix well.
