Ham fried rice from

Ham Fried Rice. The Quinn family has tried zillions
 of fried rice recipes and this is the first one I like 
and actually love love love it!!! It is from  We even had leftovers 
for breakfast. I did some 'refrying: of the rice since
 I like it a little crunchier and less moist. Super yummy

We have tried MANY different fried rice 
recipes, but none of them tasted quite right-- 
so we made up our own! This recipe tastes
 just like the fried rice at the Chinese restaurant 
by us! You won't be disappointed!

2 c. uncooked long-grain white rice
4 c. water
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (only if you REALLY like 
sesame oil, use 3 Tbsp. sesame oil and no vegetable oil)
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 c. cubed ham (you can also use shrimp, chicken
, or a combination of all 3)
Diced veggies or peas (optional)
3 eggs, beaten
soy sauce

Cook rice according to package directions
 (with long-grain white rice it is usually 2 c. rice
 to 4 c. water.. but if for some reason you
 package directions are different, cook it accordingly).
 We actually prefer using a rice cooker, it always turns
out perfectly. Heat sesame oil and vegetable oil in a
 LARGE skillet over medium-high heat and stir in onion. 
When onions become clear and light brown, add garlic.
 When garlic is lightly browned, add ham and cook for
 about 3-4 minutes or until ham is nice and hot.
 Add veggies (optional) and cook until veggies
 are tender. Stir in beaten egg and cook until 
egg is scrambled and firm. When rice is done,
 add to skillet and mix in thoroughly. Stir in soy sauce
 (we use just enough to get it LIGHT brown, you don't
 want to add to much... remember, you can always add
 more later when it's on your plate, but you can't take it
 away if you use too much!) Serve immediately.
