"My family really enjoyed this and so did I, for the most part. I think I have to play with the veggies a bit to get the taste that I'm looking for. It did turn out really good and was easy. Fried rice is one of those recipes for me that I've always been scared to try, but this was very simple and the results were good."

"This fried rice didn't taste that great. The flavor wasn't very appealing...I made this and it definitely didn't need bacon. I don't plan to make it again. :("

"Everyone loved this. I have never used bean sprouts in fried rice and this definitely made a difference for the better. How could anything be bad with bacon?"

"I've been on a bacon kick and this was just what I needed! It's even better reheated. I didn't change anything this time but next time I'll add a little more bacon and peas!"
