Instructions

Fried Rice

  1. In a large pan or wok, sauté chopped onion in butter over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until onion is soft and translucent. Stir in rice and break up large chunks. Add frozen peas and stir until well incorporated. Push rice to one side of the pan and add beaten eggs. Scramble eggs, stirring often and cook until fluffy. Mix eggs in with the rice. Pour soy sauce and sesame oil evenly over the rice and mix together. Turn heat up to medium-high and fry rice until any remaining liquid has evaporated and rice is hot and steamy. Season with pepper and add salt, if needed. Remove from heat.

Fried Eggs

  1. Heat a small pan over medium heat. When hot, add oil/butter and move pan around to evenly coat the bottom. Crack a whole egg into the hot pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Season with salt and pepper. You can partially cover the pan with a lid if you like the top of the egg cooked too. Cook for a few minutes, until the yolk is done to your liking. Remove the egg to a plate and repeat the process for the remaining eggs.
  2. Distribute fried rice into bowls and top with fried egg and chopped green onion. Serves 3-4

Bacon Fried Rice

  1. In a large pan, cook your bacon according to package directions. Remove bacon and drain grease, reserving 1-2 tablespoons. Cook onion in bacon grease over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until onion is soft and translucent. Stir in rice and break up large chunks. Add frozen peas and stir until well incorporated. Push rice to one side of the pan and add beaten eggs. Scramble eggs, stirring often and cook until fluffy. Mix eggs in with the rice. Pour soy sauce and sesame oil evenly over the rice and mix together. Turn heat up to medium-high and fry rice until any remaining liquid has evaporated and rice is hot and steamy. Chop or crumble bacon and mix into the rice. I add about 2-3 pieces per person/serving. Season with pepper and add salt, if needed. Remove from heat and distribute into bowls. Top with fried egg and chopped green onion. Serves 3-4.
