Serves: 2 

  • 250g microwave rice
  • 8 tablespoons frozen peas
  • 200g cubed pancetta
  • 1 egg

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Place the rice pack and peas into the microwave for 4 minutes (or according to packet instructions).
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan and fry the pancetta.
  3. Add the peas to the pan and then the rice. Fry for a minute or two, and then mix in the whisked egg to create egg fried rice.
  4. Serve as a main or a side dish.


I sometimes like to add a red onion, or some smoked sausage instead of pancetta.


A good dish for left over meats, i.e. roast chicken or beef.

Very simple to make and totally delicious. I made my own rice instead of buying the packet type, purely because it was cheaper that way. Would definitely recommend. - 05 Aug 2013
