Fried Rice with Peas and Carrots

Fried Rice with Peas and Carrots is a superb dish to make your meal more interesting. This can eat up both as a meal in itself for breakfast or for lunch at the side of either pork Menudo or hen with broccoli.


Ingredients
4 cups cooked white rice preferably leftover
¾ cup of frozen green peas
¾ cup frozen carrots
6 strips bacon chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder

Instructions
Separate the clumps of rice with a spoon or you can dampen your hands and gently mash until the clumps break and rice gets separated. Set aside.
Meanwhile, heat a wide frying pan on a stovetop. Add the chopped bacon. Continue to cook in medium heat while stirring the bacon once in a while until bacon oil is extracted and the bacon gets somewhat crispy.
If there is too much bacon oil, scoop some of it until about ¼ cup is left. Push the bacon on one end of the pot opens on the other side of the pan. Using your ladle, quickly stir the eggs until it gets scrambled. Continue to cook until the eggs are done.
Add the rice. Stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the carrots, green peas, ground black pepper, and onion powder. Continue to stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes.
Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with your favorite dish.
