Aussie Version Fried Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Luv2Cook inNC

My husband is originally from Australia. When we go back I am constantly looking though cookbooks. I think I found this is one of my mother-in-laws old cookbooks. This is a very simple recipe made with things usually on hand. Also, big plus my kids love it.

I needed to use up a package of chicken noodle soup mix and found this recipe. The tastiest fried rice ever!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups instant rice
  • 12-1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 12 lb bacon, use a good cut so to avoid too much grease
  • 1 12 ounces chicken noodle soup mix
  • 2 eggs


  1. Cook the rice with the peas according to package directions. I use a microwave rice cooker, works great. I also put in 1 chicken boullion for flavor.
  2. While this is cooking chop up the bacon and fry with onion in fry pan. I use kitchen shears to cup up bacon. I like to brown the bacon well, it seems to add extra flavor.
  3. Add the cooked rice, peas, and soup to the pan. Original recipe didn't call for it, but I add a bit of water at this stage and 1-2 T butter if getting dry looking. Cook for 15 minutes. Helps to put lid on skillet I find. It helps to soften the noodles from the soup mix. Need to keep an eye on the prevent sticking. Add 2 scrambled eggs, cook through. Enjoy!
