Ham Fried Rice

Inspired by a local Thai restaurant, this Ham Fried Rice is delicious!

Ham Fried Rice


I buy a ham several times a year.  I don’t buy it often, but when I do, I bake it and we eat a dinner with slices of ham.  Then I chop up all the leftovers and divide it into freezer bags, and it makes for simple dinners later on.  One of those delicious dinners is Ham Fried Rice.

After eating fried rice at a local restaurant not too long ago, I found that I really liked the way their ham fried rice was prepared.  It had amazing flavor, so I tried to replicate that flavor in this rice.  Not too salty, but flavorful– and I feel like I got it pretty well.

My husband said, “You should add this to the regular meals you make,” so that seemed like a good indicator that this was amazing.  In fact, as I was editing the pictures for this ham fried rice, he saw a picture and said that he wished he would have gotten to eat more of it.  So I think we’ll be having it for dinner again soon!

  1. In a large skillet (I used my 10" Cast Iron Lodge skillet), heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium high heat. When oil is hot, scramble eggs in it, and remove to a clean bowl.
  2. Heat the other tablespoon of oil in the skillet and cook onion and garlic. Add sesame oil and soy sauce, then ham, corn, and rice, and cook until everything is cooked through.


Make sure to get all of your ingredients ready before you start, since this is a fast-paced meal to make.
