Have you ever seen that hilarious Japanese spaghetti-western film, Tampopo? You know that scene where the hobo/gastronome breaks into the restaurant kitchen and whips up a fried rice omelette for the little boy? Here's my version of that.

Cut a slice or two of bacon into matchsticks. In a non stick pan, fry over medium heat. When the bacon is just at the edge of crispy, add about a 1/3 of a cup of chopped yellow onion. Saute until onion is just translucent, then add a chicken thigh that's been cut up into small-ish bite size pieces. Cook through (already cooked meat can be used too). Raise heat to medium high. Add a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil to pan and then add about a cup of day-old rice. Toss around until rice is heated through. To the rice mixture, add a couple of good squeezes of ketchup, mix to combine. Taste. Adjust salt and pepper if needed.

In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons of ketchup with one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce.

Fill a two or three egg omelette with the rice mixture, pour ketchup sauce over the top.
