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 fried rice


  • 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


  1. Heat a couple tablespoons of bacon grease over medium heat in a skillet
  2. 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)
  3. Break egg into the pan and stir while it cooks up
  4. Add in bacon and leftover rice, stirring and breaking up clumps. Stir and cook until rice is heated through and egg is cooked
  5. Add in a bit of sweet chile sauce (or soy sauce) and eat hot!


Go make some! What veggies sound good to you to use?
