Bacon Cauliflower “Fried Rice”


by 365daysofbacon


Bacon cauliflower rice is so much better than real rice.

I know I can’t make you do anything. I’m not your mother. Or the government. Buttttt…

If I could, I’d make you swap out your regular rice for this bacon cauliflower rice every. single. time.

It takes 10 minutes to make. It tastes good by itself. It’s arguably more nutritious and a lot less… well… plain boring starch.

(Take that, basmati!)

Goes great under a stir fry, in a lettuce wrap, or with a splash of curry. I find it especially good with a few leaves of cilantro mixed in.



  • 1-2 tbsp bacon grease
  • head of raw cauliflower
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • crumbled bacon or bacon bits (optional)
  • cilantro (optional)


  1. Briefly pulse chopped cauliflower in a food processor (until it resembles rice!).
  2. In a large skillet, melt bacon grease in a pan.
  3. Stir riced cauliflower into bacon grease and cilantro, if using.
  4. Saute just until cauliflower crunch is gone.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and crumbled bacon (if using).

  1. I would for sure leave out the cilantro but this sounds great! Bet someone could use a potato masher in lieu of a food processor if they don’t have one 🙂
