I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Fridge Fried Rice
...in your mind.

Fridge Fried Rice


  • 1/2 pound bacon, diced
  • 2 cups diced vegetables: carrot, celery, peppers, onions, green onions, mushrooms - pretty much anything you have
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 4 cups cooked rice, cold - and cold is the important rice, so preferably day old
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Diced green onions for garnish


  1. Heat pan or wok on medium heat and cook bacon until just getting crispy - remove bacon and drain on paper towels but leave a couple tablespoons of grease in the pan
  2. Add vegetables and stir fry until just softened, about 5 minutes
  3. Add bacon and rice - stir with spatula constantly, breaking up pieces 3-5 minutes until hot
  4. Beat eggs in a small bowl and stir in soy & sesame oil
  5. Add egg mixture to rice and stir really well to combine and cook the eggs - 2 to 3 minutes
  6. Serve topped with green onions.
