In making this tasty dish of egg fried rice with bacon the following items are required. The whole process takes only 30 minutes.
• 8 oz. lean bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
• 1 tablespoon oil
• 1 medium onion, finely diced
• fresh black pepper, to taste
• 1 teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon sugar

On how to make the bacon and egg fried rice, the starting point is heating oil in a frying pan over medium heat to add the ingredients. First, add beaten eggs. Scramble the eggs, and remove it from the frying pan, and keep it aside.
Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp, for about 10 minutes. Drain it on a paper towel-lined plate. The crispiness is a personal preference. Once the bacon is looking good it can be taken off the pan and set aside near the scrambled eggs. Now add the diced onion to the pan and stir-fry until it is translucent and add the cooked rice and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Use a spatula to flatten out clumps and add the salt, sugar, and soy sauces. Now stir for a minute or so. When steam emanates from the rice, know that heating is adequate. In case the rice looks dry, sprinkle some water.
To finish up the cooking, stir in the bacon, scrambled eggs, pepper, and scallions. To add a bit of crunchiness, think of some topping to fried rice by placing toasted nuts or chopped fresh lettuce.
Crunchy pickled carrots and sliced jalapeños can also do. Remember Pad Thai Fried Rice’s crunch enhanced by bean sprouts and peanuts. Now the “egg and bacon fried rice” is ready to serve.
