Bacon Fried Rice

So my son comes home from his best friend's house proclaiming the utter deliciousness of the meal he ate while there.  Bacon fried rice!  I was intrigued but let it go.  I've never made fried rice of any kind so why start now?  But my son continued to bring it up here and there - he is a lover of bacon -  so I finally asked Mrs. R. for the recipe as she stood in my entryway last evening, picking up her son from our house.

As she related her recipe in her lovely Filipino tones, I mentally checked off each item that I already had in my pantry.  The only missing ingredient was Johnny Salt which she adds.  I simply improvised after checking its mystery ingredients on line.

Just before the power went out in a lightning storm, I threw together this easy and - yes - utterly delicious bacony meal.  Although my son said it wasn't the same as Mrs. R's he gave it two thumbs way up.  In fact, there were no leftovers to share with Dad when he got home!  

4 cups cooked rice ( I used white)
4 slices bacon, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1 carrot, grated
2 eggs
dashes of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne pepper
soy sauce to taste

1.  Steam rice.
2.  In a large saucepan render bacon until crispy.  Remove to drain and pour off most of the fat leaving some in the pan to sauté veggies.
3.  Sauté onions and carrots, stirring constantly for one minute.  
4.  Add eggs and stir quickly with veggies until eggs are cooked.
5.  Stir in rice, seasonings and soy sauce.
6.  Add bacon and serve.
