Anytime is a good time for......BACON! BUT......weekends are the best to enjoy this Bacon and Eggs with Garlic Fried Rice recipe! Go ahead sit down, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this yummy goodness! It only takes 15 minutes to make! So how awesome is that??!
- 2 T Olive Oil (Extra Virgin)
- 1 Clove Garlic (Chopped)
- 2 Cups Cooked Long Grain Rice (preferably a day or two days old)
- 6 Slices Bacon
- 3 Eggs
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
FOR THE BACON:
- Arrange bacon slices on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Place the baking sheet in the oven and set the oven temperature for 400 degrees.
- Once it reaches that desired temperature, that's when you set the timer for 6 minutes. That's one minute of cooking time per slice of bacon. NOTE that cooking time will vary depending on thickness of bacon. Once it is cooked, place the bacon onto a paper towel to help absorb the fat and oil.
FOR THE RICE:
- In a skillet over medium heat, put 1T of olive oil . Add chopped garlic and sauté for about a minute, maybe less. Try to get that garlic that nice golden color and with a slight crispness to it. Be careful not to burn it. Burnt garlic tastes bitter and you do not want that!
- Add the rice and seasonings in the skillet. Sauté everything together, being sure garlic and seasonings are all mixed in with the rice. This will take about four minutes for the rice to be heated through.
FOR THE EGGS:
- This is free for all! I'll leave this one up to you and cook it anyway you want. Fry, scramble, poach or boil or you can skip it altogether. Enjoy!!
- Baking the bacon in the oven, lends a healthier benefit in that all of the grease drips out of the bacon and onto the pan.
- Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of bacon.
- Long grain rice is a better choice for this recipe since long grain rice has less starch and when cooked it is less sticky and the grain separates - allowing for the garlic flavor to really blend in nicely with the rice.
- For reason mentioned above, the older the rice (and has been in the refrigerator) allows for it to be drier and again will impart more of a garlicky flavor.
