Fried Rice

I love fried rice. This recipe is so easy and is great served with wontons! I adapted several recipes I have seen and made this my own. Enjoy!

Fried Rice
2 cups cooked rice (old rice will absorb flavors better, but fresh is fine)
1/4 cup diced scallions
1/4 cup diced ham
1/2 cup frozen veggies (corn, carrot, and pea blend)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2-3 Tbs. soy sauce (Be conservative. You don't want it to get too salty. You can always add more later.)
2 eggs, beaten
vegetable oil
tabasco sauce (optional)

Brown scallion, vegetables, and ham in 1-2 Tbs. oil over medium heat until ham starts to get some color, vegetables defrost, and scallion softens a little. Add rice, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Stir until combined. Cook until heated through. Pour beaten eggs over the top and stir until there are bits of scrambled egg throughout and all the egg is cooked. Add tabasco to taste if desired.
Brown the veggies and ham
Add the seasonings and rice. It's that easy!
