Rice Cooker Bacon and Onion Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by strawberrybird

This rich rice dish can be made in a rice cooker, my favorite, or a regular pot. It goes well with red meat, such as stew or steak.

Wow, this is really good. I didn't have any bacon on hand so I cooked the onion in some bacon fat and added real bacon bits. It turned out really good. Now that I have bacon on hand, I'll be making it again tonight. My husband and older kids liked it. The littles are losing out but it leaves more for us! Thanks for posting.
