Seriously the BEST fried rice I have ever had! You can add as much or as little bacon as you want...or even leave it out all together...BUT I think you should add some, the smokey flavor makes the stir fry...over the top!
Bacon Fried Rice
1/2 T sesame oil
4 T soy sauce
2 large carrots, diced or shredded
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 large red bell pepper, diced
1/2 large green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup peas
4 cups cooked white rice
2 eggs, scrambled
1/2 - 1 package cooked bacon, chopped
Directions: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until soft, add 2 T soy sauce. Stir in carrots, celery, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, peas and stir-fry another 5 minutes. Add rice and stir thoroughly. Stir in scrambled eggs, bacon and 2 T soy sauce. Heat through and serve hot.
I baked my bacon and used one package, minus two pieces that didn't make it to the chopping board ;)
