Emergency “Dump ‘n Bake” Fried Rice

Yields: 5 Servings Difficulty: Medium Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 50 Mins Total Time: 55 Mins
This recipe was conceived as an emergency, ultra low-effort side dish. Just dump all the ingredients in a pan, and shove it in the oven. End result: seasoned rice that’s amazingly similar to wok-tossed fried rice! Every grain of rice is perfectly cooked and fluffy, and the bacon even goes golden!

0/7 Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 200°C / 390°F (180°C fan).
  • Mix ingredients in baking dish: Place all Baked Fried Rice ingredients except bacon in a baking dish (~22 x 32cm / 9 x 13"). Stir, then spread rice evenly across pan.
  • Top with bacon: Scatter bacon across surface.
  • Bake covered 40 min: Cover with foil. Bake 40 minutes.
  • Bake uncovered 15 min: Remove foil. Bake uncovered 15 minutes – this will colour the bacon. Liquid should be absorbed, rice should be cooked (but will seem wet, will absorb and soften while resting).
  • Rest 10 min: Cover loosely with foil, stand for 10 minutes.
  • Fluff: Add green onion and sesame oil. Fluff rice with fork, marvel at how perfectly cooked the rice grains are. Serve!
