This week we are featuring one of our favorite recipes out of The Official Backyard Hibachi Cookbook, Bacon Fried Rice! We love finding reasons to cook bacon, and the smell of bacon cooking on a hibachi is like no other. It's also a relatively easy way to make friends with our neighbors. Who doesn't love bacon? And who doesn't love fried rice? Put them together, add some veggies, eggs, and you have quick and delicious meal!
The bacon adds a delightful crispy bite that we just can't get over and we should probably warn you that one bowl might not be enough. This Bacon Fried Rice will have you coming back for more!
