Mmm Monday: Reader request Sweet Pea Fried Rice

This week's Mmm Monday is a reader request from Stephanie for the Sweet Pea Fried Rice that was in last week's menu plan. If any of our dinners strike your fancy, please email me or leave a comment requesting the recipe and I will be sure to share it for the following week's Mmm Monday!

I love any fried rice recipes, because they're my user-upers, meaning that I can put just about anything that I have left over in my fridge into the recipe. It's a great way to hide veggies for the kids (or husband) who are anti-green. This recipe is from All You, but I'm not completely sure which issue. I believe it was the August one, but don't quote me on that.

Ingredients

8 oz. turkey bacon
8 scallions, white & light green parts, sliced
1 clove garlic, chopped
6 cups cooked rice
¼ cup soy sauce
1 10-oz. package frozen green peas, thawed
4 large eggs, beaten
Salt & Pepper
  1. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and chop.
  2. Add scallions and garlic. Reduce heat to medium and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Rub rice between hands to break up and loosen grain. Add to skillet and stir to blend in scallions & garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in soy sauce and peas. Push mixture to one side and pour in eggs. Cook eggs until slightly set on bottom, about 2 minutes.
  5. Mix rice into eggs and stir until thoroughly blended, breaking up any clumps of cooked egg.
  6. Stir in bacon. Season with salt & pepper and remove from heat. Serve!
Like I mentioned, you can add just about anything to a fried rice recipe and it's cheap. I like to throw in carrots and other random meat-type things that I have on hand. Just for the record, the recipe is published as 3 steps in the magazine, but I broke up the last step because the paragraph was huge and I like my steps to be very straight-forward.

Bon app├ętit!
