Ham Fried Rice

Today's recipe is the perfect companion to my Sweet & Sour Chicken!  With just a little prep work ahead of time, this dish comes together within minutes.  I love that!

Thanks to Kolette for another yummy recipe (adapted sightly)!

Here's what you'll need:

2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp. chopped green onion
1/4 C. diced ham
1/3 C. frozen peas and carrots, cooked and cooled
2 C. cold, cooked rice
1/8 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper
1 tsp soy sauce, opt.

Earlier in the day, I got as much of the prep work done as I could.  So, I chopped my green onion, diced the ham, cooked the peas and carrots, and cook the rice as well.  Then I just kept each of those things in the fridge until I was ready to put everything together just before it was time to eat.

When you're almost ready to eat, cook your eggs over medium-high heat until firm.

 Add the green onion, peas and carrots, and diced ham and stir until heated.

Stir in the rice, salt, and pepper.

 If you'd like, you can add the soy sauce.  Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed and rice is hot.

Serve immediately.  If you get all of the prep work done earlier, it takes about 5-10 minutes until this dish is ready to eat.  Awesome!
