Early last week, I made fajitas for supper. I was using leftover steak so there wasn’t a lot of meat. I got busy making rice and refried beans to stretch the meal a bit.
Not thinking, I shut the rice off earlier than I should have and at supper time, the rice wasn’t cooked. UGH. The next day I heated it up and cooked it the rest of the way…Even though he’s not a rice fan (unless it’s in rice pudding) I hoped Hubby might eat it..Nope.
Well I am on a kick that I am determined not to let food go to waste so I thought I would make it into rice pudding. That’s when I remembered the homemade fried rice recipe I have.
It’s so good…Here’s the recipe.
8 slices of bacon diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can sliced drained mushrooms
3 c. cooked rice (mine was brown rice)
1 egg beaten
2 T. soy sauce
Saute the bacon until brown. Add onions and mushrooms cooking until tender. (I added some chopped peppers too.) Drain off all but two teaspoons drippings. Add rice. Combine egg and soy sauce. Stir into rice mixture. Cook, stirring 2-3 minutes until heated and egg is cooked.
This can be made a half hour in advance and sit in a warm oven. The recipe is great for using up leftover rice….yet it doesn’t taste like a leftover at all.
Hubby really like this (even though he doesn’t like rice) as he says…”the bacon gives the rice flavor”.
Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.
