Bacon-Cliantro Fried Rice

This is by FAR the best fried rice I have EVER eaten!  Brian was watching a show called Simply Ming and decided to make the recipe.  It's easy and delicious.  We ended up taking about half of the bacon grease out of the pan because we had such fatty bacon.  

Bacon-Cilantro Fried Rice

4 eggs
8 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 bunch scallions sliced thinly, separate white and green (we used green onions)
8 cups cooked jasmin rice, day old
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Canola oil for cooking

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs together until well-combined. In a large sauté pan over high heat coated with 1/4-inch of oil, gently lower the eggs in and season. Eggs will puff up and cook through very quickly; transfer eggs and oil to a paper towel-lined plate. In the same pan, cook the bacon. When bacon is almost fully cooked, add the garlic, ginger and scallion whites and stir-fry for 1 minute, until softened and fragrant. Add the rice, soy sauce and eggs and stir to heat through and break up the eggs. Check for flavor and season if necessary.  Toss in the cilantro and scallion greens and serve.
