Bacon Fried Rice

We are going to have a little piece of Asia on the blog this week, let’s start out with Bacon Fried Rice.

My husband and I got this recipe a long time ago in a cooking classes and we have altered it to our liking.

This time we didn’t add carrots or peas, but we have in the past. We just dice up the carrots and pre cook them. You could also use ham, or chicken instead of Bacon.

  • Sarah, my husband hates green onion so I only use it as garnish, but if you like them it would be yummy to saute up like 1/3 cup and then add the rice and continue with the recipe.

  • Looks so good. I love fried rice. I have never used bacon before though. I will give it a try.
    by the way – how much onion do you use? Or is it just for garnish? (It isn't in the ingredients list…)
