  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then tip in the egg. Leave to set for 30 secs-1 min, swirling every now and again, then tip it out and finely slice. Add bacon and mushrooms to pan, then fry until golden, about 3 mins. Add peas, garlic and ginger, then cook for 1 min.

  2. Mix the soy sauce and sugar together. Turn up the heat, add the cooked rice to the pan, heat through, then splash in the sweet soy sauce. Stir through the egg and serve straight away, with more soy sauce if you like.

I made this to use up a couple of rashers of bacon that I had left in the package. My husband just scarfed it down so must have really been good. I loved it myself!

I added some onion, 5 spice and some left over chicken to this recipe as others have suggested. It was very nice perfect for a quick winter meal.

Very enjoyable, but must admit i did add extra ingredients as i thought it would have been bland otherwise. Used bacon, onions and peppers, chilli powder, cumin and chinese five spice.

Yes done this dish tonight, rather easy to make. I used thin sirloin and cut it into strips instead of bacon. It was good even my daughter commented on it how nec it was although I would use more soya sauce as it seemed a bit dry and would certainly do it again with spring onions too.

I've made this before and really enjoyed it. Really tasty and quick and easy! I've got a bit of smoked mackerel in the fridge which i might use instead of the bacon. mmmm :)

My 2 children aged 4 and 1 loved this. I would add a bit more spice next time for us grown-ups though, as it seemed to be lacking a bit of 'something'! I used smoked bacon for a bit more flavour, and mixed mushrooms. Would make it again.

Made this last night, but fried some chicken with it, and it was absolutely delicious. Definitely on the do-again list.

I love this rice and so do my dad and my boyfriend. It's so versatile, I end up making it all the time! I especially like to serve with mince-stuffed-peppers or chicken kebabs.
