Fried Rice with Bacon and BBQ Sauce


Again, this plate of carbohydrates is not for me :( It's for you know who. I cooked this fried rice on a Saturday morning for my partner to take to work. He works Saturdays and sometimes he comes home at 5:00pm for his lunch. That's right 5:00pm. 

And then we have dinner at 7:00pm. "Don't worry, I can eat dinner. My food digests very fast". That's my partner for you. I don't know where the food goes to but never mind.

Fried rice is really versatile and you can put whatever you like into it and it comes out tasting good every time. That morning, I decided on smoked back bacon. Now how could that not taste nice, eh? I also added onions, garlic, carrots, peas and spring onions. For seasoning it was light soya sauce and HP BBQ sauce.



And oh, I topped it up with a fried egg too. So, Mr Arthur Wee, how's my fried egg? If you think that my egg yolk was overcooked,  it was because that's how my partner likes it. No runny yolk for him because of what? Bacteria. hee..hee...


This is my pathetic attempt at frying eggs using the conventional wok because my non-stick pan is no longer in service. I obviously need more practice.


So there you have it, an easy fried rice that is filling and tasty too. I don't have exact measurements for this recipe . Just go with the flow and make your own estimates and adjustments. I guarantee whatever you do, it will taste good.

    1. Salted fish???? Aiyorrrrr!!!!!! Sacrilege!!! The clash of the titans!!! Not compatible at all. How to savour the exquisite taste of either the bacon or the salted fish! It has to be one or the other - both nice but not together!

    2. Hah..hah...Chris...see STP freaked out on your suggestion.

      STP, totally agree that it has to be one or the other. Maybe Chris wanted salted fish fried rice. That one is delicious too.

    1. Just wondering about the peas there - we have those frozen veg in packets, with carrots and corn kernels. No problem with the two but the peas are always as hard as stone. Even boiling them first did not help. I've given up on using those.

    2. Bacon is always good anytime!

      The peas I used are the frozen ones from a New Zealand brand. They are good, not hard at all. What I do is defrost them overnight in the fridge or just before cooking. In fact they are very nice eaten just like that. Very sweet.

  4. I love fried rice, in fact, any fried rice.. I didn't have "kak yeh fan" the last time I cooked it, so I cooked a new pot of rice, scooped out, cooled it, and put in the fridge for 2-3 hours.. Same effect, very good.. Biji-biji one the rice..
    I love bacon fried rice.. Mum's way: Bacon, green peas and egg only.. Her way is crack all the eggs and mix into rice and stor together, so the rice is a bit mushy, but we never complained.. My way is to fry the eggs first, put aside, then only campak the rice in..
    I agree on the bacteria thingy, but sometimes, ala, "sik jor jing shuin" (eat first, think later).. Every weekend, I make half-boiled eggs for myself and G.. G can eat 2 half-boiled eggs! I worry about the bacteria too though..

    1. Hi Louiz! I don't mix the egg with the rice because I don't like it soggy. I did that once and learnt a lesson but some people like it that way. I prefer you way of frying the eggs first. So far I have not had any problems with half boiled eggs even when I was a kid. My brothers also had half boiled eggs when they were very young. Hmmm...G has good appetite for eggs. They are good for him.

    1. Oh, I certainly agree about the corn, peas and carrot mix. I also don't fancy it at all. Bacon with anything is nice hah..hah...

    1. Yes, yes! Definitely nice to have crispy bacon sprinkled over the rice. It was too early in the morning and I didn't think of that. I like runny yolk too and so far I have not had tummy ache from eating soft boiled eggs.

  11. I think your partner is afraid of salmonella poisoning due to raw eggs. I don't know why but in the news I often read of Westerners getting salmonella poisoning after consuming not fully cooked egg. In UK, if you see a Lion Quality Mark (red mark) on a raw egg like this:

    http://www.egginfo.co.uk/british-lion-code-practice

    it means the egg is safe from salmonella but here there is no such practice.

    1. Hi Mun! I think we Asians are used to eating soft boiled eggs from young and we have developed a strong immune system. If young children are too protected and live in very sterile environment, they are more vulnerable because their immune system did not get the chance develop defence against germs, These days there are pasteurized eggs available at the supermarket. More expensive of course.

  12. I like to eat moist fried rice. I am sure I will like to your fried rice and fully cooked egg. No fatty meat inside since the back bacon's fatty bits would have already sizzled to become fried bits, I am fine else I would need to selectively spit out those gently. For people wanting to put on weight, eating fried rice is the faster than eating plain rice because of the oil used to fry the rice.

  26. Bacon? Where? The only hint of bacon that I can see is the ones in the packaging. If I cook, I will make sure the bacon is the main visible ingredient XD
