Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon, until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and let drain on paper towels.
  • Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the skillet and increase the heat to medium-high. Add eggs and scramble. Once fully cooked, remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon butter to the now-empty skillet and heat until melted. Add the shallot and season with salt and pepper. Sautee for 2-3 minutes, until the shallot has softened. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds longer, until fragrant.
  • Increase the heat to high and add in remaining tablespoon butter. Once melted, add the rice, peas, green onions, soy sauce and oyster sauce, stir to combine.
  • Fry over high heat for approximately 3 minutes, until it’s getting nice and brown, and crispy.
  • Add the bacon and eggs and stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Notes

Storage + Freezing: 
Leftover fried rice will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Or, store it in the freezer for up to three months. I like to package it into individual Ziploc sandwich bags and freeze it laying flat.
To cook frozen fried rice, thaw it overnight in the fridge. Then, heat 1 Tablespoon oil in a medium skillet. Add fried rice and cook until warmed through, about 5-7 minutes.
