Fried Rice with Ham and Peanuts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

Make sure your rice is cold with this recipe, if it's warm or hot the grains will stick together. I use leftover chinese carry-out rice to make this and vary the ingredients according to what I have on hand.

Wonderful! Tastes like Chinese take-out.*** I used ham and followed the directions, except I used frozen pepper and minced garlic in the jar (all I had). I served it with a bag of stir fried veggies and buttermilk biscuits (also from the can). Thanks for sharing
