Bacon and Egg Fried Rice with Peas and Carrots is a good dish to make to make your meal more exciting. This can be consumed either as a meal in itself for breakfast, or for lunch along with either pork menudo or chicken with broccoli.
I featured a similar fried rice recipe called Spam fried rice a few weeks ago. This dish was inspired by that recipe, but this is even tastier because you can savor the bacon all the time. You can’t go wrong with bacon, even in fried rice.
I had this dish for breakfast today. It was delicious. I could have had it all by itself as a meal, but my husband made extra fried eggs, so I had to eat this with a piece of sunny side up egg. I think that the egg was a bonus which gave me the reason to use Tabasco sauce for breakfast. I’m not sure if you can relate, but do you also use hot sauce as a condiment to fried egg?

- 4 cups cooked white rice (preferably leftover)
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup frozen green peas

- 6 strips bacon, chopped
