Bacon Fried Rice

I love making fried rice, almost as much as we like eating it. It is such a nice way to put a tasty meal on the table quickly, and use up things in your refrigerator.
It is kind of like quiche, you use a basic recipe and add what you like or what you have on hand!

It works best if you use cold rice, preferably from the night before.
The bacon was already cooked and nice and crisp! I also cooked up some bok choy that needed to be used up, and I always have carrots on hand...so a few of them were added to the tiny bit of oil to cook up along with the bok choy. The snow peas were added right before the rice.


I like to use:
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp ginger garlic sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
Of course all seasoning is to your taste!
In a little well that you create in the middle of the cooked rice, add a few drops of canola oil and drop in an egg then stirring until cooked through and gently mix through the other ingredients.

I added the bacon last right before serving so it will still be crisp. I wasn't sure about this at first...but then after all...it's bacon! It was great!

I was hoping to have some left to use in my bento box lunch the next day, but no such luck.

What are some different things that you like to add to your fried rice?
