Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: about 4 servings
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cooked ham, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ small white onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, drained
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
  1. Heat a large skillet (or wok) over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil to the skillet.
  2. Add ham, onion, and bell pepper to the skillet. Cook for3-4 minutes or until the onions are soft and the meat is browned. Add garlic and ginger, cook for 1 minute stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Push the ham and veggies to one side. Add the eggs to the skillet. Stir to quickly scramble the eggs. Cook for 3 minutes or until the eggs are almost done. Stir everything together.
  4. Add the pineapple and cooked rice to the skillet, stir until evenly combined.
  5. Pour the sesame oil and soy sauce over the rice mixture. Stir to combine.
  6. Add ⅔ of the green onions and stir until combined.
  7. Transfer the fried rice to a serving bowl and top with more green onions.
  8. Serve immediately.
To get 3 cups cooked rice, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add 1 cup uncooked white rice to the pot. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is fluffy.

I used an 8-ounce of cooked, diced ham, but this recipe is a great way to use up leftover holiday ham.
