Fried Rice Carbonara


A clever twist on the traditional pasta carbonara using day-old cooked rice. Really fast and delicious



  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 rashers of bacon chopped
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 6 cups of cooked rice
  • 1 cup of grated cheese
  • 1 a little oil for frying
  • 1 a handful of chopped parsley
  • salt & pepper


  1. In a large frying pan or similar fry the bacon pieces and the onion in a little oil until cooked.
  2. Add the cooked rice and cook gently until the rice is hot.
  3. Stir frequently so that the rice doesn’t stick to the pan.
  4. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks together in a bowl with a little salt 7 pepper (bacon and cheese are both salty so don’t over do the salt)
  5. Once the rice is steaming hot remove from heat and pour the egg mixture in and stir with a fork vigorously so that the egg mixture coats the rice evenly while it cooks.
  6. Add half of the cheese once the egg is almost cooked and stir again.
  7. Serve with a little extra cheese, chopped parsley and pepper on top



  • Add chopped capsicum, tomato, spinach or courgette while heating the rice
