Fried Rice with Ham & Vegetables

For a belated Mother's Day gift, I gave my mom a mother/daughter time with a cooking class at our local Central Market. We had a great time and learned a ton of new, delicious, healthy recipes. I am going to try and remake them in hopes they turn out just a good. This one was a success! I never realized how easy it is to make fried rice. We won't be turning to take out again!

Fried Rice with Ham & Vegetables
Serves 4

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup diced cooked ham
2 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables
4 cups cooked rice, chilled
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce ( I added)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil (I added)

Preheat a large nonstick skillet or wok on medium-high heat. Add oil to pan. Add the beaten eggs, cooking until set. With the edge of your spatula, break cooked egg into smaller pieces making thing strips. Place eggs on a plate and set aside.

Add ham and frozen vegetable to pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cooked rice and reserved egg strips. Sprinkle with soy sauce (and Hoisin and sesame oil). Heat through, about 3 to 5 minutes, tossing gently to coat with soy sauce. Serve with additional soy sauce if desired.
