When I first made this for my husband I couldn’t believe how he gobbled it up. I grew up having this meal after holidays such as Christmas and Easter. We always had ham on those holidays but there was always leftovers. My grandma would make this with the leftovers. So now when we go to my Mom’s house for any of those holidays and ham is served I’m always begging for leftovers! This really is quite an easy meal to throw together.
Pork Fried Rice

1 cup ham (cut up into bite size pieces)

1 cup rice
1/2 cup frozen peas

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add rice and simmer, covered for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile brown up ham in large frying pan with oil on medium heat.
Beat 2 eggs in a small bowl.
Push ham aside in frying pan and add eggs and scramble. Turn heat to low.
Slowly work ham pieces into egg mixture.
Turn off heat to the egg ham mixture.
Boil peas as directed on package.
Pour rice over egg ham mixture. Add peas. Sprinkle soy sauce over mixture. You may need to add more, just keep stirring. Garnish with sliced scallions.
