Ham and Egg Fried Rice with Sweet Peas is an easy fried rice recipe to make with leftover white rice and ham. The eggs and sweet peas make it look and taste better. This is good for lunch along with some sweet and sour pork. It also works for fried dishes.
I usually have fried rice with a bowl of egg drop soup on the side and a serving of Chinese pork Asado. I really enjoyed the combination of dishes and made it my regular order in the restaurant where we usually dine-in.
There were times wherein I cannot think of anything to eat Ham and Egg Fried Rice with Sweet Peas with (maybe because this is a meal in itself), so I just eat it as it is. Sometimes I like to add a little bit of ketchup on the rice.
By the way, it is best if you use frozen green peas instead of the ones in can. It is easier to toss the peas while frozen and it does not turn into a mash easily no matter how many times you toss and stir-fry the rice.
