This is one of those ‘I can’t be arsed dinners’ that I throw together during the week. Fried rice with bacon and peas, both of which I always have in the freezer, loads of salty sauces and a fried egg. It’s so dreamy. If you don’t have any cooked rice, you will need about 150g of uncooked rice. Basmati is perfect. I love spicy food so always add in two tablespoons of Sriracha chilli sauce. If you want yours a little milder, try one tablespoon to start with.
- Heat half the oil in wok over a high heat. Add the bacon and onion and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until crispy. Add the garlic and frozen peas and stir-fry for 30 seconds to get the peas going.
- Chuck the rice into the wok and continue to stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until hot. Pour the chilli sauce, soy sauce and oyster sauce into the wok and mix well. Remove from the heat.
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat and crack in the eggs. Fry for 2-3 minutes until crispy around the edges.
- To serve, divide the rice between two plates and top with the eggs. Drizzle over the chilli sauce and a little more soy. Garnish with the coriander, grab a spoon and go for it.
