Bacon-wrapped rice

Bacon-wrapped rice

Yield: 4

Bacon-wrapped bundles of sticky, glutinous rice are a great substitute for your weekend brunch plate when toast or potatoes start to feel a bit monotonous. When buying rice make sure to buy sticky rice with short grain and follow the package directions to ensure optimal stickiness. And always buy lovely, thick cute (Yukon grown) bacon whenever possible

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweet glutinous rice, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • 8 strips thick bacon
  • Fried egg, to serve
  • Sliced green onions, to serve
  • Soy sauce, to serve
  • Chili oil, to serve
  • Sesame seeds, to serve

Instructions

  1. Set the oven at 425 degrees. Divide the cooked rice into 4 even portions, place the sesame oil in a small bowl and using your fingers even coat and flatten each portion of rice into the shape of a hockey puck. Season the rice with salt. Wrap each ball of rice with a strip of bacon, then flip and wrap it again so that each package is wrapped like a ribbon on a present.
  2. Place each bacon-wrapped rice patty in a roasting pan and place in the oven, roast until bacon is browned, about 18 minutes. Serve topped with fried eggs and sliced green onions.
