Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When you’re hungry and in a pinch, fried rice is always a good idea. This recipe makes an already easy dish even easier because everything is cooked in a single sheet pan. Fried rice is perfectly versatile and you can change up the types of veggies or proteins based on what you already have in your refrigerator.

Makes 4 Servings


  • 4 cups cooked Imperfect Foods Brown Rice (preferable leftover and slightly dry)
  • 5 green onions, thinly sliced
  • ⅓ soy sauce
  • 3 cups roughly chopped vegetables (broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash or mushrooms work well)
  • 6 oz bacon, cut into 2-inch pieces or 1 package Imperfect Foods Bacon Ends and Pieces (you can also substitute in chopped sausage, ground pork or beef)
  • Optional toppings: fried eggs, sesame seeds, chili sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  2. Add rice, soy sauce, vegetables, and the scallions. Toss with your hands and spread into an even layer.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven and stir, to avoid burning the edges. Return to the oven and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Add bacon pieces and stir again and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp (or if using other protein, cook until protein is fully cooked). 
  4. Remove from the oven. Serve with additional soy sauce to taste and top with fried egg, sesame seeds, or chili sauce, if desired.
