Cooking bacon fried rice

This is a family recipe that I was fortunate to wake up to many of my mornings as an American pinay teenager.  It’s an east meets west fusion dish when garlic fried rice merges with traditional bacon and scrambled eggs.  My family always uses day old brown rice versus fresh, as it holds better.  Also a great way to repurpose leftover rice! Traditionally my parents used white rice, but their diet habits changed when they were both diagnosed with diabetes type 2.  Bacon Fried Rice can be served as a side dish for meals with BBQ beef, veggie, shrimp skewers or grilled protein of your choice.
