I had forgotten to take meat out of the freezer for dinner today, but had bacon in the fridge. I found this recipe via ingredient search using bacon and rice.
Since I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, and the rest of my family isn't, I try to make recipes that I can make without the meat, and just add it in after my portion is removed. This one worked perfectly in that respect! What I did different: Used ~5tb EVOO in place of the bacon drippings, used a pack of peas and pearl onions I had in the freezer, omitted the green onions as I didn't have them on hand, and lastly, waited until I had mine out to stir in the cooked bacon. It came out pretty good. My husband loved it, and wants it again soon. It worked out nicely for my vegetarian needs, and tasted better than so-so, but not amazing. Because of the 2 main factors (husband, and veg accomodating) I give it a 5 star rating.
Thanks for getting me out of my dinner bind tonight!!!
