Bacon Fried Rice

The most delicious fried rice has to come from using day old rice for that perfect texture, but add in bacon for a bacon fried rice and it’s out of this world!

Cade and I got this recipe a long time ago in a cooking class up at BYU-Idaho and we have altered it to our liking. Can you even believe how crazy it is to thinking that almost 20 years ago we were in college, needing an extra credit and wound up as Newlyweds in a cooking class? It was seriously all kinds of fun and I will always look back with the fondest memories of that time. 

Especially since that’s when I learned that Cade can totally bust out a killer Apple Pie. 

Can Fried Rice Sit Out Overnight?
It is always safest to refrigerate rice within 2-3 hours of cooking it.
Rice isn’t doesn’t often cause illness, but there could be bacteria that survive the cooking process.

How Long Will Fried Rice Keep?
Fried rice will keep for 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
Store in an air tight container.

Can You Freeze Fried Rice?
For long storage of fried rice, you can freeze it which is what I do literally every time that I make fried rice. 
Freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
