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.

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
