My husband loved this dish. Said it tasted just like the rice you get in Chinese restaurants. I didn't change a thing! I like how fluffy this is, not mushy at all.

This was good, but a little bland for us.

I added a few things. Added a couple handfuls of fresh bean sprouts and I also cut bacon up before frying (use 1/3 of a lb) along with 3 or 4 tbsps of soy sauce, which I put in same skillet right before the rice. Also add chopped up sweet onion and a couple tsp of sugar to soy sauce. This is the most requested dish from all my friends and family.

Oh wow this is good. DD couldn't quit eating this before our dinner was ready....lol. I loved the bacon in this. I did add some celery along with the green onions, otherwise followed recipe exactly. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

Easy and yummy! I threw in slices of Chinese sausage as well. Perfect way to use leftover rice. Thanks!

My mom came back from a vacation once and brought us this recipe. Bacon Rice has become a favorite in our home since. I make mine a little differently but it is the same concept. I cook a pound or two of bacon and drain it, leave a couple of tablespoons of oil in the pan then I brown onion and garlic in the skillet and dump in my rice and fry it a bit then add water and cook the rice. When the rice is almost done I toss in a handful of frozen peas or carrots the soy sauce and then when the rice is completely cooked just before serving I toss the crumbled bacon in. This is a very tasty recipe! I do add the green onions when I have them. If I happen to have left over cooked rice I will make it more similar to the recipe posted here but my family loves rice so there usually is not any leftover so I start this dish from scratch. I am glad to see this recipe here!! It is a keeper!

Great taste for so few ingredients. I halved the recipe, but still used one egg and the full amount of bacon.

This rice was quick and easy to make, but I guess I'm just used to oomph in that flavor department; it was a bit bland for me, but it was by no means unpleasant. I would have to say that it is a kid-friendly side dish as my grandson asked for seconds. The instructions were very well written, and I made it exactly as suggested. I made no additions or substitutions. Thank yo Lady Di Shea, for your contribution to our menu. I served these with Judy's awesome lumpia which is posted on zaar as well.
