Q8's Fried Rice

I used to get annoyed at the way everything stuck to the pan and made a frightful mess, with half-cooked egg to deal with. This method of cooking the rice is "neater" and still tastes sensational!
  • 1 cup of white rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 long rashers bacon, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • small tin sweet corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup cooked peas
  • soy sauce
  • salt, pepper, spices to taste
  • chopped chives
  • (optional) small cooked prawns
  • Cook the rice in a big saucepan for 15 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain.
  • Beat the eggs slightly with salt, pepper, onion salt, Chinese spice, or whatever takes your fancy.
  • Pour beaten eggs into a lightly-oiled frypan, and cook as if an omelette.
  • Remove cooked eggs, chopping up with the egg-flip or a knife.
  • In the frypan, cook the bacon and onion.
  • Wipe out the big saucepan -- into it place the cooked rice and all other ingredients. The amount of soy sauce you use will depend on your preferences, so go easy to start with.
  • Reheat everything, stirring constantly to avoid the food sticking to the saucepan.
  • You can keep this in a casserole dish, then serve hot, sprinkling with more chopped chives.
