Fried Rice

1 cup cold cooked rice
3 slices of bacon
1/2 cup of finely chopped veggies (celery, bean sprouts, mushrooms, green onions)
1/2 cup of chopped meat (cooked chicken, pork, beef or shrimp)
3 scrambled eggs
Couple of splashes of soy sauce (to taste)

Slice bacon into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces and fry until crisp over medium- high heat.

Saute veggies in a little oil until crisp tender.

Add cooked meat and mix in well. Set aside.

Add cold cooked rice (don't add it in one big lump - shake it up in a tupperware bowl or zip lock baggie so it's separated nicely).

Quickly and gently keep it moving around the pan - the goal here is to brown (actually, tan) the rice in the bacon grease without letting a big glob of rice absorb all the grease.

When the rice is a nice even color, add the raw vegies and cooked meat and keep it moving (stirring gently) around the pan until everything is nice and hot, add veggies and stir fry until warmed through.

Add the scrambled eggs (already cooked) and a couple of splashes of soy sauce (taste as you go,it's easier to add more...) and keep it moving (stirring gently) for about another minute or so until the eggs are hot.
