Fried rice for breakfast makes perfect sense when it’s loaded with bacon, ham and eggs

Have you ever tried fried rice for breakfast? Mix it with bacon, ham and eggs, and you might never wait for dinner to eat this dish again.

There is something about rice in the morning that can seem strange for some people. In some Asian countries, it is quite normal, so don’t worry, you are not doing anything so out of the ordinary. In fact, breakfast fried rice is a way to use leftover rice from the previous night’s dinner. Day-old rice is the best kind to use because it is drier than freshly cooked rice. If you plan to make this, then you can cook the rice the night before to save time the following morning; it also makes the dish taste better.
