Bacon Fried Brown Rice

Quick to make, this Bacon Fried Brown Rice is delicious for a weeknight!

I served this fried rice with baked cream cheese wontons. A very light drizzle of sesame oil and rice vinegar is great in this dish too.

Bacon Fried Brown Rice
serves 4-6
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.

Top with green onions and serve.

Easy Baked Cream Cheese Wontons

  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese
  • 4-5 green onions, sliced
  • water
  • 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.
