Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 x 80g pack bacon lardons (or 100g chopped streaky bacon)
  • 250g frozen mixed vegetables (we used a frozen stir-fry vegetable pack)
  • 3 spring onions or 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 x 250g pouch cooked rice
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce, plus more to serve

Step by step

  1. Mix the eggs with the sesame oil and some seasoning. Heat half the vegetable oil in a wok or deep frying pan and cook the eggs, continually stirring, until you have scrambled egg. Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Heat another teaspoon of vegetable oil and fry the bacon pieces until crisp and golden. Add the mixed vegetables, tossing everything together. Fry for another 5-6 minutes until the vegetables have defrosted and are just tender. Add the onion (reserve a few of the green spring-onion tops if using), ginger and garlic, and stir-fry for a minute, then add the rice, breaking up into the veg as you mix. Fry for another 2-3 minutes until piping hot.
  3. Season with the soy sauce, and add the scrambled egg back to the wok, folding everything together. Serve in bowls with a drizzle more soy sauce and the reserved spring onion greens (if using). A drizzle of chilli sauce wouldn’t go amiss here.
