Bacon fried rice

I feel like it has been a long time since I wrote a post on rice, even though it is definitely one of my favourite things to eat! I know the bacon and egg sounds like breakfast, but I don’t think most people would eat this first thing in the morning!! I made this fried rice a few days ago for my hubby’s birthday dinner…. Wait before you call me a bad wife… I would like to point out that I offered to have a big party for him and he was not happy about it. He says he never liked celebrating his birthday… which is exactly the opposite of me!! I love it, when people make a fuss over my birthday… as long as they don’t ask me how old I am getting! 😉

So back to the rice, I asked him what he wanted to have for dinner, I would make him anything he wants, and he opted for fried rice. So I thought I would make the rice a little different to my usual recipes, so I added the bacon to the rice. They say bacon makes everything taste better! I used Turkey bacon and that worked well, so you don’t have to use the full fat version of bacon, to have yummy food! This rice is a fusion of different flavours, as most people would not add curry powder to their bacon! My husband absolutely loved his fried rice dinner, so I hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients

1 ½ cup Rice

2 Eggs

3 Turkey Bacon slices (chopped)

1 Chicken Breast (Cooked)

1 Yellow Onion (chopped)

2 Spring Onions (chopped)

6 Garlic Cloves (minced)

1 cup Carrot (shredded)

1 Red Sweet Chili Pepper (chopped)

1 Yellow Sweet Chili Pepper (chopped)

1 cup Frozen Peas (thawed)

1 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar

1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce

½ Tsp Curry Powder

½ Tsp Red Chili flakes

½ Tsp Cumin Powder

Method

Put the rice in a pot with 2 cups of water. Cook till tender. Set aside in the fridge to cool.

Crack the eggs in a bowl and mix with a teaspoon of water.

Heat up a wok and add half a teaspoon of vegetable oil.

preparing eggs

Stir in the eggs and make a scramble. Take the eggs of the wok and set aside.

At this point the wok is probably sticky with egg residue, so I suggest adding a little oil and drop in the bacon pieces.

Fry the bacon for a few minutes until they have slightly browned.

Then add in the carrot and stir fry till it softens.
