Bacon Fried Brown Rice
Recipe adapted from Buns In My Oven
- 4 slices bacon, sliced
- 4 cups cooked, cold brown rice
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 8.5 oz can peas and carrots
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- sriracha, to taste (optional)
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until chewy and crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Drain the bacon fat into a bowl or coffee cup.
Return one tablespoon of bacon fat to the skillet. Heat over medium-high heat and cook onion until soft. Add peas & carrots and garlic. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes.
To the skillet, add in one tablespoon bacon fat on high heat. Stir in rice and bacon and cook 5-8 minutes, or until hot. Push the rice to one side and add eggs to cleared side. Scramble the eggs and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until fully cooked. Stir into rice. Season with soy sauce and sriracha, if using.

Easy Baked Cream Cheese Wontons
- 1 package wonton wrappers
- 1 (8oz) package cream cheese
- 4-5 green onions, sliced
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 and spray a sheet pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Take a wonton wrapper and place 2 or 3 slices green onions and about 1 teaspoon cream cheese in the center of the wrapper. Brush the edges of the wrapper with water. Fold over to make a triangle, pressing the edges together. Pinch the two ends together, if desired. Continue until all wonton wrappers and/or cream cheese is used. Lightly spray the tops of the wonton wrappers with cooking spray.
Bake until golden, about 5 to 8 minutes.
