Rotel burritos and a question

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m always looking for more ways to sneak Ro-tel into my life. This is my latest method! It’s insanely quick and easy and quite tasty, if I do say so myself.

Bacon fried rice

You know what bacon fried rice needs? More bacon.

I know, I’m a visionary.

I kept hearing talk of bacon fried rice on Twitter so I decided to concoct my own version: veggies, leftover rice, and bacon fried in bacon grease.

Bacon grease (which I always have in the fridge)
Broccoli, chopped
Cooked bacon, chopped
Carrots (I shredded them because I like them tiny)
1 egg
Leftover rice
Sweet chile sauce


Heat a couple tablespoons of bacon grease over medium heat in a skillet
Add in chopped up veggies and cook for a few minutes until they’re as tender as you like; I’m Southern so this was more like 10 minutes for me (you can also add a little water and put the lid on to steam them very tender)
Break egg into the pan and stir while it cooks up
Add in bacon and leftover rice, stirring and breaking up clumps. Stir and cook until rice is heated through and egg is cooked
Add in a bit of sweet chile sauce (or soy sauce) and eat hot!2.5 One Particular Kitchen – All Rights Reserved
