Recipe: Bacon Fried "Rice"

I like this recipe, because I consider it a kitchen sink option. What I mean by that is, any leftover vegetables, or ingredients you might have, you can toss into this, and it will still taste great. Additionally, while these pictures show rice, grated cauliflower (fake rice) works exactly the same, and so the recipe is great for Primal (rice, is okay after a big workout), and keto/paleo just by substituting cauliflower.

Bacon Fried "Rice"

4 ounces of mushrooms
2 eggs
4-6 slices of bacon (cut into pieces)
2 cups of  "rice"
2 Tbsp of soy sauce
Scallions to taste

Any other ingredient can be added in. Broccoli, zucchini, etc, just avoid very "wet" vegetables, like tomatoes.

1. Cook bacon, about 90% done in a pan. After done, separate bacon fat, and bacon, and leave half the fat in the pan to cook the eggs. Save the other half for the "rice" later.
2. Cook the eggs, but barely. You want them to still be wet and mushy, but not completely liquid. Separate eggs, and then add the bacon fat back to the pan.

3. Cook the "rice" in the bacon fat, for 5-7 minutes. Stir often.

4. Add back other ingredients to the "rice" and continue to cook for 7-8 minutes.
