Homemade Fried Rice

This is a very quick and easy meal to prepare, make as per the recipe or simply search through your fridge to see what vegetables you have on hand, really any vegetable can be added to this dish.


I only add a little dash of soy sauce to the rice mixture while in the frying pan, as each of us like a different mild/strong soy flavour, so we add a little more to our bowls if needed.

I love making fried rice. I also lightly whisk a couple of eggs and pour into the pan while the bacon is browning. Then once the bacon is browned and the egg has cooked and firmed up just break it apart with tongs/spoon and mix through the bacon and onion.

Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!
