TikTok tests Whisk, a new feature that makes it easy to save recipes

And it is why I’m always on the lookout for things like this Bacon and Egg Fried Rice that a colleague shared with me, saying, “I thought of you as soon as I saw this one.”

The recipe is from “The Dinner Plan” by Caroline Campion and Kathy Brennan (Abrams, 2017). The cookbook features 135 recipes designated as make-ahead, staggered, one-dish, extra-fast and pantry. This one hits all of those marks.
