I’d bet you are familiar with takeout containers of Ham Fried Rice, and while that stuff is pretty good, this is 500% better. Maybe I just feel this way cause we didn’t eat a lot of Chinese takeout growing up, but this has been one of my favorite meals for many many years!
My mom would make it occasionally, usually as a birthday dinner request or on New Year’s Day. I’m not really sure why New Year’s Day = Chinese, since we all know that isn’t the same as Chinese New Year’s, but it’s a tradition I’m willing to carry on. You know, so I can have an excuse to eat Ham Fried Rice and Sweet and Sour Chicken.
This is recipe is the very first in the recipe book I started when I left home and started cooking for myself.
- 2 Tbs. butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbs. green onion, chopped
- 1 tps. sugar
- dash pepper
- 4 c. rice (cooked)
- 1½ Tbs. soy sauce
- ½-1 cup ham, chopped
- Melt butter in a large pan. Scramble eggs in melted butter. Add green onion, sugar, and pepper to eggs. Add rice, soy sauce, and ham to eggs. Steam for 15 minutes.
Serve it with our Sweet and Sour Chicken for a meal your family will love!
