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.)
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!
