Avocado Breakfast Fried Rice with Bacon

If you’ve never had fried rice for breakfast before, you must try it! This breakfast friendly fried rice has avocado and bacon for some breakfast synergies, made with brown rice, peas, egg, and lots of salty soy sauce.

Avocado Breakfast Fried Rice with Bacon

Sure, in college I’d have all kinds of leftovers for breakfast – pizza, noodles, rice. As I’ve matured and moved past my party college years, I still do love fried rice for breakfast (without the hangover, of course.)

Avocado Breakfast Fried Rice with Bacon

This fried rice is made with brown rice that’s cooked with the oils from bacon, for rich, robust flavor in every bite. The bacon fat cooks the onions, garlic, peas, egg, and the brown rice soaks up those flavors. The avocado is slightly heated in the rice and the bacon is then crumbled on top.

While this makes a fun breakfast, it’s also great for lunch, too! It can be reheated in a skillet or microwave, so meal prep friendly too, just add the avocado when you’re going to eat it so it doesn’t get mushy and brown.

Avocado Breakfast Fried Rice with Bacon

Note: if you’re vegetarian, simply omit the bacon. And if you’re gluten-free, use coconut aminos or tamari instead!

Switch up your breakfast game with this fried rice!

Could you use bacon bits or is the intent to use the bacon drippings for extra flavor?
Meaghan says:
The bacon drippings do add flavor but you could use anything you have on hand!

hi! 👋🏼 just checking in! twins are doing so well, their little personalities are really shining through. and they’re getting so big, they barely fit on my chest together anymore 😭😭 (rio is almost 11 pounds and sol is almost 10!) they’re sleeping almost 5 hours at night which gives me some rest in between nursing sessions (if I’m lucky enough that one of my older kids doesn’t wake up in between that time 🤦🏻‍♀️.) as for me, I’m coming out of the newborn fog 🙏🏼 the hardest part has been dividing my time between all FOUR of my kids, honestly. I’ll never get it right 😏 today I had my 6 week postpartum check up and I guess everything is back where it’s supposed to go 😅 because I got the green light to resume normal life again, but can we be honest…. with twin newborns, I’m in no rush to 🏋🏻‍♀️ or 🍆 , ya know? ...

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

potato and brussels sprouts white bean soup w/ or w/o chicken sausage⁣ 👇🏼
serves 4-6

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
