My obsession with ham fried rice started at a young age. I was the pickiest eater created! Every time we would go out to eat I would order chicken fingers, even for breakfast. And if we got chinese food, I would order ham fried rice. I would enjoy a big huge bowl to myself and be in ham fried rice heaven.

Luckily I grew out of my picky eater stage and grew to love all sorts of foods. Although it took me 20 years to be able to enjoy a salad. But there will always be a special place in my heart for ham fried rice. I was craving it randomly for lunch. Every time I make my fried rice recipe I am reminded how amazing it is!! With a few little secrets to it, you can have restaurant quality right at home! Packed with ham and delicious veggies this was so incredible. This recipe is easy and makes quite a bit. Even better for me because I will have leftovers for days. 🙂
