Better than Takeout Ham Fried Rice


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. 🙂
