Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

24 minutes




  • 1 cup of rice pre-cooked and refrigerated overnight or for at least 3 hours
  • 2 rashers of bacon cut into strips
  • ½ small onion diced
  • 1 clove of garlic diced
  • ¼ cup frozen peas
  • ½ carrot diced
  • 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce (optional)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • Pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup of gluten free flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 180℃/360℉ fan forced.
  • Combine the rice, onion, garlic, peas, carrot, bacon, soy sauce, oyster sauce (if using) and sesame oil. Sift over the GF flour and pour in the eggs. Crack over pepper and mix well.
  • Take a 12-cup muffin tray and grease with olive oil.
  • Scoop in the rice mixture to the top of each muffin cup. Press down on each with a spoon to compact the rice so they will hold firmly while baking.
  • Place the muffin tray into the oven and cook for 25 minutes. The rice should just be starting to brown and crisp before you take it out.
  • Allow to cool in the muffin tray before removing to serve or pack into lunchboxes.
