A few comments on the preparation. Fry the rice and ham in the oil and soy sauce to give it some texture and flavor, then add veggies and egg!! If you add green onions at the beginning, they will be nondescript green mush when served. Add them just before removing from heat. Also, if you cook the eggs beforehand as an "omelette", you can roll up and cut into nice little strips to add at the end. Otherwise eggs just clump and make dish heavy. Read More

very good recipe my family loved it even my picky 4 year old! We did leave out the sprouts just because nobody in the family likes them! We made this with sweet and sour pork. It was an excellent combination! Thank you for sharing Read More

Made this for lunch using some leftovers so I changed the way I cooked it. I used leftover cooked white rice and ham from christmas. I put that in my tupperware dish added some of the frozen peas and carrots (still frozen) and some chopped green onion with a splash of soy sauce. I microwaved one egg and chopped it up and added it to the tupperware. Great lunch and so easy to make!!! Read More

Cut oil in half & 1/4 c. chicken broth to keep egg moist; used only 1/2 t. salt since ham and soy sauce has so much sodium. Otherwise followed directions. Very good! Read More

My husband made this recipe and followed the directions to the letter . The only thing we didn’t do was to put the soy sauce in while it was cooking . The soy sauce was on the table and we added it as we wanted it. This turned out to be a very delicious side dish for Shrimp Spring Rolls. Thanks for such a delicious recipe. Read More
