UPDATE: MY HUBS AND I HAD LEFTOVER RICE FOR LUNCH TODAY. I'M NOT A "LEFTOVER" ANYTHING FAN, BUT I HAVE TO SAY, THIS IS MUCH BETTER THE NEXT DAY! WHO KNEW? :) Not bad! Although my hubs enjoyed this more than I did, I wouldn't hesitate to make this again in the future. The addition of bacon really adds a LOT of flavor and is what makes this dish so unique. Add a protein and you've got a filling main dish (I added ~ 1/2 lb. pre-cooked salad shrimp to ours)! Besides bulking this up a bit, I made a few more (minor) changes. Because I already had a bag of frozen peas / carrots handy, I used that instead of peas only. I added quite a bit more soy sauce than called for, maybe even double the amount (personal preference) and substituted equal amounts of sesame / wok oil for the vegetable oil called for. I also chopped my egg rather than slicing it into thin strips and prepared my rice in advance (and refrigerated it). To make a proper fried rice, you should ALWAYS start with COLD, leftover rice. Served with egg rolls on the side, this was a fun meal. I still prefer CJ's fried rice, but this was decent nonetheless. My hubs liked this SO much that he told ALL of his co-workers about our meal lol! That along makes this a winner in my book! :-) Thanks again, homemaker!
