Ingredients

4 cups cooked brown rice

3/4 cup Food Network Kitchen™ Inspirations Korean Gochujang Cooking Sauce

Kosher salt

4 strips bacon

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

4 large eggs

1 avocado, sliced

2 scallions, sliced

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

2 teaspoons black sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Toss together the rice and 1/2 cup of the Korean Gochujang Cooking Sauce in a medium bowl. Cover and microwave until hot, stirring halfway through, about 4 minutes. Season with salt.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain and then roughly chop.
  3. Wipe out the skillet, add the oil and place it over medium-high heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet and sprinkle each with a little salt. Cover and cook until desired doneness. Remove from the heat.
  4. Divide the hot rice among 4 bowls. Top each with an egg, avocado slices, bacon, the remaining cooking sauce and scallions. Drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon of the sesame oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
