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!

  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 3-4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

  1. Place a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crispy, flipping halfway through. Set bacon aside on a paper towel lined plate. Add in the garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes and cook until translucent, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes. Add the peas and rice and stir well to combine.

Remove from heat and crumble over the bacon, add the avocado, and stir again to combine. Serve.
