  • 5 strips of thick-cut bacon or 8-10 normal strips, sliced into 1/2" pieces

  • 4 cups day-old cooked white rice
  • Chives for garnish optional but very nice


  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add chopped bacon and saute until almost crisp (5-6 min). Skim off excess fat, leaving about 1 1/2 to 2 Tbsp in the pan.

  3. Stir in day old rice until well combined and cook until heated through (2 min). Serve garnished with green onion if desired.

Recipe Notes

Tip: This works best with refrigerated day old rice. Don't use fresh rice or it becomes a sticky fried rice and it's not as good. To cook rice, we use a rice maker with these proportons: 2 cups rice, 2 1/2 cups water, 2 Tbsp butter and 1 tsp salt.
