I really like how this turned out! Had about 3 cups of precooked brown rice I spelunked from the freezer.

I fried up about 8 slices of chopped bacon, on medium, in a cast iron skillet, poured off most of the grease, then added a couple eggs and scrambled them with the bacon. Added a couple handfuls of chopped green onion, a T of fish sauce and low sodium soy sauce, bashed the heck out of a bottle of some low sodium oyster sauce (maybe about 1/4 cup) and added the precooked rice. A squirt of sesame oil, a handful of golden raisins, a couple handfuls of frozen baby peas, a half can of rinsed and drained bean sprouts. Cooked and stirred. Think I might sprinkle on some China Boy noodles.

My original plans had been to use pineapple chunks, but the raisins worked well.

Thanks, PF! She was on floor cleanup committee. No rice grain left behind. Or bacon grains, I also noticed.

Sounds great Dawg. I also always do my fried rice with bacon, it may not be "authentic" but I've yet to be turned in by the food police, and it makes it delicious. I also do chopped celery with leaves in mine in addition to the peas and throw in a handful of sliced almonds on the top. Add some shrimp to the mix and you've got a meal!

Thanks Kayelle! I was disappointed as I was out of pineapple, but the raisins were a great standin. I haven't been arrested by the Food Police yet either! I always use bacon in my fried rice.

I'll have to remember that Dawg. I always have golden raisins around for my rice pilaf and also broccoli salad.

I like the idea of the raisins, now I'm thinking of using leftover turkey and craisins, gobble, gobble!

This is one of those recipes where the process is more important than the ingredients. I make it every couple of weeks on musgoe night, always different, a real comfort food. A great addition to the DC budget recipe hall of fame.

40 some years ago a friend's mom made fried rice with Bacon. It's been our favorite fried rice ever since. Don't always have bacon in the house, nevertheless, it is a preferred ingredient. Pineapple, I have to try this too. And raisins.

My mom was a marginal cook at best, but she always added bacon and peas to her fried rice packet mix, along with the Minute Rice. We loved it!

oh I have to have peas in it too Dawg. The last time I made it I forgot them, and it just wasn't the same. I only remembered when it was gone.
