Breakfast Fried Rice

Breakfast Fried Rice makes an amazing breakfast. It is sure to become a family favorite. I’ve never thought of rice as a breakfast food before and then a friend mentioned she had tried making some rice with bacon in it for breakfast. This got me thinking for several days about it so I went into the kitchen finally and came up with the best fried rice I’d had in a long time. It was hard to stop eating it, that’s how much I loved it.

I’ve been telling you all week about the awesome meats I’d gotten from Butcher Box. Well in the bottom of the box was the most delicious bacon I’ve had in a long time. This is an uncured, no sugar bacon that comes from pork that is vegetarian fed with no antibiotics from Peterson’s farm. I am seeing some bacon gravy and biscuits in my future soon. Like maybe tomorrow?

You can use any leftover rice you have. Your fried rice will be better if you allow the rice to chill and also dry out. I used a 10 minute boil in the bag rice which I cooked on purpose yesterday just to make this rice today. I love using Jasmine rice also for fried rice. Mix and match the veggies to change it up. Serve with or without the poached egg. I think the egg enhanced it, it acts like a sauce almost. Cut it up and mix it into the rice. Don’t like poached eggs? Then a minute before you think it is done, push the rice to sides the best you can and scramble 2 eggs and mix that in. The possibilities are endless!

    Breakfast fried rice is challenging my sense of ‘normal’ – now I’ll have to try it – just to see if it’s good for breakfast!!!
