Not sure how classic bacon is in classic fried rice, but I don’t care. This was gooood. It smelled good (isn’t it amazing how everyone thinks you’re cooking something incredible in your kitchen when all you’re cooking is bacon?) and it tasted even better. I followed the recipe as written (there are infinite variations you could try) except for cooking the egg separately, like a crepe, then rolling it up like a cigar and slicing it, chiffonade-style, for a more authentic presentation. This is so delicious I’d be happy to eat it all by itself, but I served it with Asian Grilled Chicken, and Easy Bok Choy, recipes also from this site.
Didn't love it, but still ate it. I've never had fried rice with bacon before... it just seemed not right to me.
very tasty, family really enjoyed it. Love all the garlic, might add more (we like a lot of garlic). You can do a lot with this recipe (adding chicken, pork, vegetables) great way to use up left over rice.. My Husband went back for seconds and said make this again, (rarely ever said)
This was a real hit, but I made changes: Added a few more bacon strips and another egg;didn't have the green onions, so substituted with a regular onion and 1/2 green pepper; added chopped fresh mushrooms, and sprinkled with some Adobo seasoning at the end. This was heavy on the grease, so after cooking each item (bacon, eggs, veggies) I drained the grease on paper towels. This got raves, and fed a lot of people!
Better than most take-out places! I never thought I could make fried rice at home! This is seriously good! This is good for a side dish OR add chicken/shrimp/steak and you've got a meal! Thanks! I think this is my FAVORITE recipe on this site!
Delicious, fast, and easy. Possibilities are endless with what you can add to it.
GREAT! I had been wasting 99cents a pack for "fried rice" seasoning only to figure out it's dehydrated soy sauce! duh! wow.... We love fried rice and this was the BEST ever one i've ever made! The bacon made it "special"!! I cooked the bacon, then cooked the chicken in the bacon grease then cooked the eggs in the remaining bacon grease. YUM! i made a ton of it and just added seasoning (soy sauce) to taste. it's so much easier than i ever realized! will make this recipe forever more!
We liked this, but thought it could use another egg & a bit more soy sauce. Still great, thanks for the recipe!
