  • 3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 green onions
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1:  Prepare the Ingredients
  1. Cook the Rice:  If you don't have leftover rice, cook fresh rice and let it cool.  Day0old rice works best for fried rice.
  2. Chop the Vegetables:  Finely chop the onion, bell peppers, and mince the garlic.
Step 2:  Cook the Bacon
  1. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy.  Remove and place on a paper towel to remove excess grease.  Once cooled crumble into bite-sized pieces.
Step 3:  Cook the Vegetables
  1. Heat the Oil:  In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.  
  2. Sauté the Onion and Garlic:  Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet.  Sauté for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and translucent.
  3. Add the Bell Peppers:  Stir in the diced bell peppers.  Cook another 3-4 minutes until they are tender.
Step 4:  Fry the Rice
  1. Add the Rice:  Add the cooked rice to the skillet.  Break up any clumps and stir well to combine with the vegetables.
  2. Season the Rice:  Pour the soy sauce and oyster sauce (if using).  Stir continuously to ensure the rice is evenly coated and heated through.  Cook for 5-6 minutes, allowing the rice to get slightly crispy.
Step 5:  Fry the Egg
  1. Heat a Small Pan:  In a separate small frying pan, heat a bit of oil over medium heat.  
  2. Fry the Eggs:  Crack the eggs into the pan and fry until the whites are set, but the yolks are still runny, about 3-4 minutes.  Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. 
Step 6:  Serve
  1. Assemble the Dish:  Divide the fried rice into bowls or plates.  Top each serving with a fried egg.
  2. Garnish:  Sprinkle chopped green onions over the top for added flavor and color.  

Serve your delicious breakfast fried hot, with the yolk of the fried egg mixing into the rice for an extra burst of flavor.  This dish is sure to become a morning favorite.
