Today, with some left over rice and extra ham from hash browns earlier this week I was able to throw together a pan full of fried rice.  I thought I would share the way I made it.

Ingredients:

  • Tablespoon of canola oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 3 cups of rice
  • 1 cup of cooked ham, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons of soy sauce
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 eggs

Cook the 2 vegetables, until cooked enough to eat, tender but not browned.  Add the rice and add following ingredients and stir until heated thoroughly.  Add the peas and warm them.  Lastly create a doughnut hole in the rice so that the pan is visible in the middle of the rice.  Crack and scramble the 2 eggs in the middle of the rice, mix in only after the egg is fully cooked.  Mix the eggs evenly throughout the rice mixture.

Many different vegetables may be used for this recipe and any kind of cooked meat is also fine; this recipe is very versatile.  You can try different kinds or vary the amounts to suit your family.

This is a good main dish for a few people or a side for strips of meat.  This would also be amazing with some egg rolls, yum!
