To Make the Soft-Boiled Eggs
Boil water over medium heat in a large saucepan. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower the eggs into the water. Cook for 6 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the boiling water and transfer them to a cold bowl of water. Allow them to chill for 2-3 minutes.
Use a spoon to gently crack the eggs. Carefully peel off the shell. Set eggs aside.
To Make the Fried Rice
In a large dutch oven or cast iron pot, cook the bacon on medium heat. After 5 minutes, add the cubed SPAM and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the meats are lightly browned with crispy edges.
Remove the bacon and SPAM and set side, then remove half of the excess oil from the pot and also set aside.
Add the onion to the pot and cook for 5-7 minutes.
Incorporate the celery and 1/2 cup soy sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the celery is tender.
Add in the cooked rice one cup at a time, folding the ingredients into the rice.
Add an additional 1 1/2 cups of soy sauce to the pot and fold the ingredients until all of the rice is evenly coated.
Season with pepper and fold in the bacon, SPAM, scallions, and furikake until the rice is homogenous.
Serve in bowls and top with a soft-boiled egg.
