Another one of my more experimental moments. Yet this Soy Bacon, Egg and Rice came out really well.
Adding in some mushroom helped with the flavour. The Soy Sauce was a definite winner though because it both moistened and added to the taste.
All in All, it was a great lunch that came from what was perhaps a wild idea.
Still, those wild ideas do often produce something good!
This is a great way to use leftover rice. Bacon and Eggs that failed to get eaten at breakfast could also be used as a part of it.
Simple and quick to prepare and, as I like to say, yummy in my tummy
- 1 rasher sliced Bacon
- 1 hard boiled Egg
- 1 largish white Mushroom
- 50g/28oz cooked White Rice
- 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- Heat a dry fry pan or wok over a medium heat.
- Put in the the bacon rasher and turn occasionally until it is cooked to your taste. I prefer lightly cooked which takes about 2 minutes. If you prefer crispy bacon then fry for longer.
- Carefully watch the bacon because you want to avoid a kitchen fire but move to the next step as it is cooking.
- Shell the egg then chop coarsely.
- Chop the mushroom. Your choice on how large you want the pieces to be.
- Bacon should now be cooked so remove from the pand and set aside on a plate or piece of kitchen paper.
- The bacon should have leaked a bit of grease into to the pan. If it seems dry then add a teaspoon of oil and heat.
- Put the mushrooms into the pan ad fry fro about 2 minutes . Keep them turning so they cook evenly.
- Add in the rice and mix well together. Fry for a minute or two so that the rice is beginning to heat.
- Scrape the chopped egg from chopping board to pan. Mix in well and continue on the heat for another couple of minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut the bacon rasher into bite-sized pieces then add that to the mixture too.
- The final stage is a tablespoon of soy sauce which is what made this creation super yummy. Add that in and stir well to mix. Keep heating for about 2 minutes to be sure everything is fully cooked then serve for a great lunch
This scales up well from one people to many people. Be sure to increase the cooking time if doing that though. As they always like to tell us, be sure food is piping hot before serving.
