Feel free to add cubed chicken or steak to make this side a main dish. Pea pods also add some color and crunch. Carey Hunt, Portland, Oregon

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 8 bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 8 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups leftover cooked rice
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Pour egg into the pan. As egg sets, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When egg is completely cooked, remove to a plate. Set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute mushrooms and onions in the drippings. Stir in the rice, bean sprouts, peas, soy sauce and bacon. Chop egg into small pieces; stir into the pan and heat through.
