What You'll Need
  • 1 small pineapple, cut into wedges
  • 2 cups white rice, cooked
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons hot sauce (optional)
  • 3 cloves, minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4-5 scallions, chopped
  • 5 strips of bacon, cooked then chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 eggs
  1. Cook white rice according to package, to make 2 cups of cooked rice
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Once cooled, break into bite size pieces. Drain the bacon grease and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pan and return the pan to medium-high heat. Add pineapple wedges to the hot pan and sear on all sides until deeply golden. Remove pineapple from the pan and let rest on a plate.
  3. Place the skillet (no need to wash out) back on the stove at medium-high heat.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan, and add minced garlic. Give it a quick stir for 30 seconds and then add the chopped onions. Stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until the onions become translucent.
  5. Push the onions to the edge of the pan and add 2 eggs. Begin stirring the eggs immediately. Once they have scrambled, begin to mix them into the onion garlic mixture.
  6. Add peas, cooked rice and soy sauce and mix together. Add the chopped scallions and bacon.
  7. Once thoroughly combined, add sesame oil and hot sauce.
  8. Top with grilled pineapple chunks and serve with additional soy sauce, hot sauce and chopped scallions.

You should also edit "3 Cloves" to "3 Cloves Garlic". Other than that, fantastic recipe and we made it twice in a week because we loved it so much! Thanks for sharing :)
