Breakfast Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of those fast and easy dishes that help you use up whatever is on hand. In this case, I’m using things up that would make a great breakfast dish. If you’ve been keeping fried rice reserved for dinner or lunch, you’ve been missing out!

*Tip

Use leftover rice! I cannot stress this enough. If you have leftover rice from the night before, this is the stuff you want to use. Not just for breakfast, but anytime you make fried rice. It’s how you get that perfect texture without it getting glumpy.

Make it your own!

In the bowl above, I used bacon, egg, green onion, and a touch of Worcestershire. You can use whatever you have on hand. Want to add in chopped veggies? Go for it! Want sausage instead of bacon? Be my guest. Some other items I’ve had in my fried rice for breakfast include chunks of toast, chopped tomato, bell pepper, mushroom, leftover ham, cubed & cooked sweet potato, and occasionally ketchup. Whatever I’m in the mood for that day.

What you need:

-Bacon grease is what I use, but you can use oil or butter if you prefer.

-leftover rice

-eggs

-add ins – think protein, veggie, etc… In this recipe I use bacon and green onion. But, as mentioned in the paragraph above, I’ve often used other items and the list is almost endless.

-skillet with plenty of room to stir fry

Instructions
  1. Melt half the bacon grease in the pan while you crack and beat the eggs. Scramble and cook the eggs in the grease. Remove to a plate.
  2. Put the remaining grease in the pan to melt. Add the rice and stir fry until coated. Add the bacon and most of the green onion and stir fry until heated through. If you want to add more ingredients this would be the right time for most of them.
  3. Add the eggs back into the pan. Make sure everything is broken up and mixed together. Remove from heat and serve with remaining green onions sprinkled on top.
