  1. That looks good! I'll have to give it a try next week. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. 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.

  3. 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…)
