Do you order the ham fried rice at Chinese restaurants? We do. My family likes it a lot. But they love this homemade version even better! This ham fried rice is loaded with veggies, so it’s a lot more nutritious as well. It’s a great weeknight meal because it’s easy and quick.

This Ham Fried Rice is quick, easy, and even tastier than take-out!

This recipe is perfect for using up leftover ham. To be honest though, my family likes it so much that we buy ham just so we can make it. It’s simple, but everyone loves it! You can use whatever veggies your family likes.

Make your own Ham Fried Rice at home. It's easy, delicious, and cheaper than take-out!

Another benefit of making your own ham fried rice is that you save a ton of money. And I’m all for that! This recipe makes quite a lot, so make sure you are using a large skillet. Or of course you can cut it in half if you have a smaller family. But the leftovers are pretty fabulous, so you could just make extra.

    Mmmmm, we love Chinese food at our house so I think this would be a big hit with a little terriyaki or sweet and sour sauce on it. Yum, thanks for sharing!
