Cooking Tips

Cook the rice a day ahead for best results or buy some from a local Asian restaurant. I have also used instant rice and it is still good.

Another thing that makes a big difference is the quality of the ham. If you’d like, you can change it up and substitute chicken or have both chicken and ham. You can also switch it up by using more veggies or just meat.

This is one recipe that you can totally cater to your own tastes and that of your family’s and still have fantastic results!

Freezer Tips

This is so easy to make and it freezes well. I like to make a double batch and freeze half of it for another day then use what is left for dinner.

It will keep for a few months before it starts to taste a little funny from the freezer. I have never really had to worry about it being in the freezer too long though because it gets eaten up pretty quickly.

All you have to do when you take it out of the freezer is defrost it and heat it up in a wok or frying pan with a little bit of oil to keep it from sticking. My kids tell me it tastes good just heated up in the microwave too!

This is how I freeze mine. Just slide it in a freezer bag and label it.

Final Thoughts

I would be willing to bet that even the pickiest eaters will like this ham fried rice! I could honestly snack on this all day, that’s how good it is. If you end up trying it out, let me know what you think!
