  • As rice is cooking, fry bacon til crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel.
  • Pour out any extra oil but don't wipe pan clean.
  • Add all the vegetables except peas to coated pan and stir fry about 10 minutes.
  • When rice mixture is done, fold in bacon, all vegetables including peas. (This is where I add the pepper).
