Bacon & Broccoli Garlic Fried Rice

  • SERVES: 4 to 6
  • PREP: 5 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

Your new go-to weeknight meal that packs in vegetables… and a little bacon.

Fried rice is a go-to super fast dinner that kids and adults love equally. This version is super garlicky and is filled with crispy bacon and crunchy broccoli to make things a liiiitle healthier. But here's the best thing about fried rice: it's super adaptable! You can swap the bacon for mushrooms if you're vegetarian, add some eggs, or pack in even more veggies, like peppers or snap peas. Pro tip: Use leftover rice instead of fresh-cooked rice, since it is drier and will get crispier in the skillet.

    cup chicken broth

  • 2

    tablespoons soy sauce, plus more to taste

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet
Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required

The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set
The Stir-Anything Wooden Utensil Set

Grab the slotted spoon to stir and al dente-test pasta, the spatula for slicing and serving quiche and crumbles, and the spoon for everything else. Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use. Use the flat, spatula-style utensil to divvy and serve quiche, brownies, berry crumbles and other treats best served warm.
