I'm a big fan of making fried rice at home. I love it - and I really think the homemade stuff trumps the stuff you get at restaurants every single time. #SorryNotSorry

It's an economical dish that is quick to make and it tastes fantastic no matter what you put into it! For real. I haver made it a ton of ways and it turns out great every single time!! It's a great way to use up leftovers or if you only have a little bit of an ingredient, it's a great way to make it stretch to feed a crowd! Fried rice is definitely in my top 5 dishes of things I like to make when I don't know what to make!

If you think fried rice is only for dinner, I'm here to show you that it is bomb-diggity for breakfast! Yes, bomb-diggity! Brian even asked me to make this again the next day after I made it for pictures for the blog. This Bacon & Egg Breakfast Fried Rice is perfect for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner!! Although the extent of veggies I used for this dish was limited to onions (white for cooking and green for garnish), you could definitely add some peas & carrots, bean sprouts or any veggie you like to the mix to make it a little more substantial. I like to serve this with fresh fruit for a meal that is so, so simple and delicious!
