Easy Quick Breakfast: Fried Chee Cheong Fun with Bacon & Eggs
I’m stoked to provide a good breakfast for my kids and to do it personally every Monday (we’ll start with one day a week!). And since I’m doing it, I need to have it done quick and easy. Last week, I made my Everything-Also-Can Egg Casserole. Today, I decided to go fusion. We’ll do a traditional Chinese breakfast with a traditional English one!
Since young, I really really loved Chee Cheong Fun (Rice Noodle Roll). The silky soft roll, with the thick sweet sauce and roasted sesame seeds. It’s so so yummy, but has close to zero nutrients! (it’s sad ya, when such yummy food are just pure yummy and nothing else!)
And my kids LOVE bacon and eggs! There’s something about the salty bacon taste, and the soft fluffy eggs that just draw them to breakfast! Remember my Bacon Egg Muffins?
This morning, I decided to put the both together! Presenting Fried Chee Cheong Fun with Bacon and Egg! It’s so simple and it takes only 15 min to prepare everything! And the best part? The kids loved it! Here’s how!
All you need is:
The pre-packed Chee Cheong Fun can be found in most supermarkets, in the chilled food section. Usually with the Tofu, Noodles, Fishballs and sometimes with the non-halal items. The Chee Cheong Fun comes with the sweet sauce and chilli, but we do not need it in this dish, so you can put the sauce aside.
The bacon can be chopped into small pieces. But if your family enjoys chunky strips, that would do as well!
Heat the skillet, and toss in the bacon. Add about 10ml of water to prevent any oil splatter. I learnt this tip from the Domestic Goddess Wannabe, Diana! It really works!
While the bacon is cooking, cut the Chee Cheong Fun into smaller pieces. I kept them to about 2-3cm wide. When the bacon is crispy, add the cut Chee Cheong Fun into the pan. Add in another 10ml of water. Ensure that every piece of rice roll is touching the water. This would soften the rolls. Lower the fire to Medium. Do not add too much water as you don’t want a stew in the morning!
You can see the Chee Cheong Fun softening, and do a slow stir-fry. Ensure all the bacon is mixed with the rice rolls. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and season it with salt and pepper. When the bacon is well mixed with the rice rolls, pour the eggs into the pan. Turn the fire back to High. Mix well. The rice rolls would start to get a little sticky now, and the water level should be close to zero. Keep stirring the eggs and bacon and rolls. When the eggs are cooked, switch off the fire and serve.
You can add some cheese if you like. For my kids, the smell of the fried bacon was enough to hurry me to serve the dish. This is a really quick breakfast to prepare! Let me know if your kids loved it as much as mine!

Breakfast is such an important meal, and it really does save time to have preplanned meals. I haven’t heard of chee chong fun. I will have to look for it.
We have a few ethnic food stores in our area, so I’m going to go in and see if they have Chee Cheong Fun. I love trying new things, and those do indeed sound yummy – both for dinner and breakfast!
I have never had Chee Cheong Fun but this looks really good. I love that you took something you love and combine it with a more traditional breakfast.
I love the recipes you come up with and would love this for breakfast tomorrow. Never heard of Chee Cheong Fun but I am going to see if we have it in any local stores!
I would enjoy trying this as it’s totally new to me and sounds delicious! Plus, when you throw bacon in there, I’m hooked.
I’ve never heard of this before, but it looks absolutely delicious (minus the bacon!)
Adding bacon makes things so much better! 🙂
