Egg and Bacon Fried Rice

Added by: on Mar 12th, 2017
We never have Chinese food - in fact the last Chinese I had was probably a couple of years ago. I love it but I always get carried away and eat too much and then feel sick. Plus my daughter only likes crispy prawns and nothing else. However every so often I dream of a good Chinese and so this .. more >

Prepare the ingredients by chopping the ginger, crushing the garlic and beating the eggs. Mix a teaspoon of sesame oil with the eggs and set to one side.


Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a wok or large frying pan and fry the bacon until crispy. Scoop the bacon out of the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving as much fat as possible behind. Next add the ginger, garlic and chilli (we left this out) to the pan and fry in the fat for a minute until adding the rice, peas and bacon. Keep cooking and tossing until the rice is piping hot (this only took a few minutes).


Pour over the eggs, stir and toss with the rice until just set and then scatter with the chives.


Finally serve with a dash of soy sauce and tuck in.


This was super good and really flavoursome and I reckon even better than a Chinese restaurant. Both my daughter Arabella and I loved it and it was very quick and easy to make. I spoke to my brother and he seemed to believe I needed to add something like sweet and sour pork or beef in black bean sauce, which I am sure would be great, but we liked it just the way it was. Healthier this way too!

A great way to use up your leftover ~ carrot, ham and spinach to make this healthy fried rice. You can also add some sweet corn into it to add extra colour to make your kids to enjoy this meal.
