Feed a Crowd for Pennies - Fried Rice

I love to cook outside and just about any kind of meat will do.  It just all tastes better on the grill.  My favorite side (or main) dish to go with chicken, steak or ribs is fried rice.  Perfect with every BBQ.   Super easy to make and you can feed a crowd for pennies.



 Make a big pot of rice. I like leftovers if there is any, so I make a lot.



 Next saute a large diced onion in a small amount of oil just until semi tender, then add - - -


 5 strips bacon (I always have partially cooked bacon in the fridge) diced and cook with onions until done.  Remove onions and bacon from pan and set aside.


 Beat 4 eggs and put in pan and scramble, then -


 add the onions and bacon back into the pan.  Mix well.


 Add all the rice and mix well.  Add soy sauce to taste, cook on low, stirring often until heated all the way through.  Salt and pepper to taste and you're done.



Serve with your favorite meat and side dish for a fabulous feast.

Make it a Main Dish - Just add diced cooked chicken or beef.  Yummy!!!

This is a recipe that I have shared before, but with the Holiday weekend and a lot of BBQ's, I thought I would repeat it.  So good, I am sure it will be a crowd pleaser at your home too.

  13. That looks different from most recipes for fried rice. It sounds like one I would really like. I used to make huge batches of rice when my kids were little and use the leftovers for rice pudding....which reminds me-we haven't had that in years- xo Diana
