Breakfast Fried Rice

5 from 5 reviews

This Breakfast Fried Rice is made using only 4 ingredients and is a super easy meal to whip up anytime of day, not just in the morning! It takes the base of leftover rice and switches up the traditional fried rice by adding in the leftover breakfast staples of bacon and eggs. You can have it on the table from start to finish in less than 15 minutes which makes it a breakfast (or dinner) win!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 pieces bacon, diced
  • 3 eggs, scrambled
  • 2 cups cooked leftover rice
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a nonstick skillet or well seasoned cast iron pan, cook bacon until crispy, about 6 minutes. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of bacon fat. Reserve leftover bacon fat for another use or discard.
  2. Lower heat to medium low and add scrambled eggs. Using a spatula move the eggs around the pan until they are fully cooked, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add rice and green onion and cook, breaking up the rice if needed with a spatula, until it is heated through about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Check the seasoning and adjust with additional salt and pepper if needed. Divide between two plates and garnish with hot sauce if using and serve immediately.

Notes

If you are using seasoned leftover rice (like our recipe for the BEST RICE EVER) you will not need any additional salt because the rice and the bacon add salt to the dish already.
