Bacon And Egg Fried Rice
(4 servings) Printable Version
Beat eggs in cup and scramble in a little oil in the skillet. Set scrambled eggs on a plate and clean the skillet for reuse.
Heat remaining oil in pan and add cooked rice. Toss rice to coat and add some soy sauce. Add eggs, bacon pieces and pepper. Add salt if desired - but remember... the soy sauce is really salty already. Stir and continue to cook for a couple minutes.
Add onions at the end so they don't overcook.
Great as both the main course or a as a side dish. This could be served for any meal, but we tend to have it at breakfast with leftover rice from the night before.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank MamaMia for this recipe.

I grew up in the south so ate this recipe all the time growing up. My parents would add back eyed peas, corn, or whatever else was leftover. You can make it with sausage or bacon. I just started adding the soy sauce a few years ago and it is definitely what takes the recipe to a higher level. I usually cook the bacon until crisp, remove the bacon, then add the onions to the bacon fat. After onion is soft, push everything to the side. Then, add eggs and cook in remaining bacon fat until just set. Add the eggs (and I like a lot of eggs in this recipe) cook until firm. Add the rice and stir about every 30 seconds until the eggs are done... Delish!!!!

This is a good dish, but I say double the bacon and add one more egg. It tastes like a dinner dish otherwise. But make my changes and it tastes like a really good breakfast.

We have been making "fried rice" for breakfast for decades... we love it. Our recipe is a little different and easier I think. We cook it all in one skillet. Bacon fried first, removed and drained. then we put the rice and green onions in the drippings of the bacon (same skillet), then break the eggs over the rice, season with salt and pepper, cook until eggs are done, crumble bacon in!

I just finished making this dish for my mom and brother and must I say its delicious. Although we had no bacon I substituted smoked sausage and added a bit of red pepper. Thanks for the recipe.

I ate this all the time growing up minus the soy sauce. great quick breakfast we just called it egg and rice even though it had bacon too.

This was really good. Instead of scrambling the eggs separately, I cooked the rice, pushed rice aside in skillet added beaten eggs to rice pan and started scrambling everything together when the egg started to set. Worked great.

Could I recommend folding the (uncooked) eggs straight into the rice? I find this way you get a more even coating and rice easier to pick up with chopsticks.
Personal preference, but the recipe is very nice anyway :)

OMG - this is a good one. I made fried rice last night however I only use rice bran oil cause you can get it super hot. The addition of bacon is a good idea.

We had his for dinner over the weekend. I wanted breakfast for dinner and my boyfriend wanted Chinese. I'm so glad we found this. It was the perfect in-between. It was a little more dinner-like than breakfast-like, so I might never make it for breakfast. But I can guarantee that we'll make it for dinner again. Thanks!
