Menu Plan Monday - August 15, 2011

Here is a recipe for one of our favorite side dishes. And since my niece asked for it specifically, that was the kick in the pants I needed to finally post it. It's another great use for leftover rice

Disclaimer: This isn't the most authentic recipe for fried rice you can find. The original came from a cookbook written by someone from Kokomo, Indiana. Hence the bacon. However, I dare you to stop eating it once you start!
Quick Fried Rice
· 6 Slices of Bacon
· 1 Cup Frozen Peas
· 1/2 an Onion, chopped
· 3 Eggs, whisked
· 4 Cups Cooked Rice (white or brown)
· 3 Tblspn Soy Sauce (we like Bragg's Liquid Aminos)

In a large skillet or wok cook bacon until crisp. Spoon of all but about 2 Tblspn bacon grease. Saute onion until tender. Push bacon and onion off to the side. Scramble egg. Add peas, rice, and soy sauce. Heat through. YUM!
