“Found this on an Aussie Website and have used it ever since. It is the easiest fried rice I've ever made and it is so good. I have often wanted to cook fried rice and I have had no leftover cooked rice ready well you don't use leftover rice for this recipe so it is a very handy recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup rice, uncooked (I use Basmati)
  • 1 -2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 -3 slices bacon, cooked & chopped
  • 2 tablespoons shallots (green onions)
  • 1 cup prawns, cooked (or add chicken, pork or anything you like instead)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (if using prawns)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons soy sauce, to taste


  1. Cook the eggs in a pan with a quick spray of olive oil. I break the yolks and run a knife through them and cook until just set then cut into small strips.
  2. Fry rice until browned, add stock and cook until moisture is absorbed and rice is tender.
  3. Add shallots, then egg and bacon pieces, cooked prawns and heat through.
  4. Add lemon juice (if using prawns) and soy sauce to taste.
