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.

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

Could you use bacon bits or is the intent to use the bacon drippings for extra flavor?

The bacon drippings do add flavor but you could use anything you have on hand!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
