Local Style Fried Rice

One of the best things about growing up in Hawaii is the variety of food. One of my favorites is fried rice, and there are so many variations of it. It is probably one of the best dishes to experiment with. Living on the east coast, I don't have access to some of my favorite meats for fried rice (Portuguese sausage, char siu pork, etc.) so it is hard to make exactly the flavor of fried rice I want. However, I think I finally came close!

Local Style Fried Rice

Recipe Source: Original Creation by Jenny

2-3 cups bacon, chopped
1 Hillshire Farm Polska Kielbasa
3 cups of rice (white or brown)
oyster sauce
1 pkg. frozen peas and carrots
chopped green onion

Fry bacon until cooked. Add sausage (precooked) towards the end. Leave the bacon grease in the pan (I seldom ever do this... but trust me). Add 3 cups of precooked rice. Mix well in the frying pan. Add oyster sauce (you just need to 'eyeball it' until it looks good). Add frozen peas and carrots. Mix again. Once the peas and carrots are no longer frozen, add the green onion (as much as you'd like). Mix until well blended. Add additional green onion on top for garnish. And there you have it!
