Bacon Fried Rice is super quick and delicious meal made with crispy bacon, peas, carrots, scrambled eggs, soy sauce, sesame oil and scallions tossed with Minute® Ready to Serve Basmati Rice.



  • 2Minute® Ready to Serve Basmati Rice cups
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup peas and carrots, diced and frozen
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce, I prefer low sodium
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, minced  (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced   (optional)


  1. Place the two Minute® Ready to Serve Basmati Rice cups in the microwave for 30 seconds. Use a fork to fluff rice up after cooking. Set to the side. Rice will not be completely warmed at this point which is fine, you just want to break it up a bit so it more easily cooks in the pan in a later step.
  2. Dice bacon slices.
  3. Chop scallions whites and greens.
  4. Mince the optional garlic and ginger if adding to dish.
  5. Heat up a large wok or nonstick pan on stovetop on a high heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Drain grease from pan as needed.
  6. Add the frozen peas, carrots and the whites of the scallion and toss for a couple minutes with bacon.
  7. Add the optional minced garlic and ginger. Toss for 30 seconds.
  8. Push the bacon, peas and carrots to the side. Add egg in the pan in an open area and scramble.
  9. Add in the two Minute Ready to Serve Basmati Rice cups and mix ingredients together while you let the rice fry a bit for a couple minutes.
  10. Pour in soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir ingredients together.
  11. Add the greens of the scallions.
  12. Serve.


I will double this recipe for my family of four.
