The difference between this recipe and others I have tried is the bacon. Fried crisp to crumble on the top and the drippings to saute the rice and vegies with. All combine to give it a good flavor.
I did change the recipe slightly as I added a tablespoon of soy sauce and a tablespoon of sherry instead of all soy sauce and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to give it a little more zip. Had some green pepper to use up so added that also. Even Bettie who is not a fan of rice thought it was good. Feel free to add or subtract from the recipe, just use cold rice and be sure to stir in the beaten egg at the end.
