My mom has been making the best ham fried rice since I can remember. It's super yummy. Probably not really good for you but the taste says "eat me anyway". I do of course. Plus it's a recipe that leaves leftovers for work lunches or leftover night (we've been doing more of this to save on our budget).
Ham Fried Rice
1 stick of butter
6 eggs - scrambled in a bowl
3/4 C of frozen peas and carrots
8 oz cubed ham
4 cups cooked rice
salt and pepper
1/2 can bean sprouts (optional - my girls won't eat them so we forego usually)
In a large skillet heat up stick of butter until it's melted and sizzles a little. Pour in your beaten eggs and scramble them. Next add ham and allow it time to heat up (pre-cubed is already cooked). Then add frozen peas and carrots (I use about 1/2 the package) and give this time to thaw and heat. Once everything in the skillet is cooked combine it with your cooked rice in a large bowl (this helps to avoid spilling). Serve while still hot or warm. It does reheat really well for leftovers as well.
