Gg’s Bacon Fried Rice

Fried rice is something the Mumsy cooks when she is tired, has leftover cooked rice and wants to make a meal fast. You can add almost any ingredient to create a fried rice that is as simple or fancy as you like. Just make sure they complement each other. There aren’t any concrete rules to making fried rice. You add as much of anything as you like. I prefer more ingredients, less rice.

It is important to use rice that is drier when cooking fried rice so you do not end up with mushy fried rice. This also allows you to use a wider variety of seasonings.

Bacon fried rice is probably the simplest to make yet does not compromise on flavour. I mean, bacon anything is good right? No additional oil is added as the bacon renders off enough fat to fry the rice and vegetables. You may pour away the fat if you’re squeamish about bacon fat. I don’t. It’s what makes bacon fried rice so tasty. I used Maple bacon as that was what I had in the fridge but ordinary streaky bacon will do too. I buy the leanest streaky bacon I can find. If you prefer back bacon, you may use that. I am not a back bacon sort of girl. If you have prawns, you may add some to your bacon fried rice. Peel, de-vein and add them after the garlic, just before the cabbage.

My DCM and I really like cabbage and bean sprouts in fried rice. I didn’t add bean sprouts in bacon fried rice as I don’t think the flavour of bean sprouts suits this particular fried rice. Corn and asparagus would be great additions to bacon fried rice. It’s really up to your own personal preference.
