Ham and Egg Fried Rice

By Sophie Beck Posted: June 08, 2010

We love fried rice and I make several different kinds. This ham and egg recipe is one of our family favorites. I always make plenty so we are sure to have leftovers. The leftover fried rice makes a great snack or lunch the next day.

We usually have it with asparagus or broccoli, fresh sliced tomatoes and some hard crunchy breads. It also goes very well with a meat dish and a fresh salad, my two grandsons love to have it all buy itself, and its a great way to get them to eat vegetables without even trying.

What you will need:

2 tbsp. soy sauce

2 tsp. sesame oil

1/4 tsp. pepper

4 tsp. canola oil divided

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 tbsp. peeled, finely chopped fresh gingerroot

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

4 cups cooked rice, chilled

2 cups frozen peas and carrots

3/4 cup ham cubes

1/2 cup sliced green onions

First in a small bowl combine the soy sauce, sesame oil and the pepper. Set aside. Next brush a 12-inch nonstick skillet or wok with 1 teaspoon of the canola oil. Add the eggs to the skillet. Cook and stir over a medium heat, breaking the eggs into small pieces or shreds. Remove eggs; set aside. Wipe the skillet with paper towels.

Add the remaining 3 teaspoons of canola oil to the skillet. Add the ginger and the garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Add chilled rice, and peas and carrots; cook and stir for about 8 minutes.

Sprinkle the soy sauce mixture over the rice mixture in the skillet. Cook for 5 more minutes, lifting and turning the rice mixture occasionally. Add ham; cook and stir 1 minute more or until heated through. Stir in green onions and cooked eggs; heat through. Serve immediately.

The total preparation time for this fried rice is about 5 minutes and the total cooking time is approximately 25 minutes. This very quick and easy recipe serves 6 and can easily be doubled for a larger crowd!
