Memphis Y'all: Two Months Midsouth

Budget Bites: Surprise Fried Rice | June 27, 2010

I made this recipe for my girls back home and it was a hit. There’s something fantastic about pineapple in fried rice that just makes me say aha! Fried rice is great as left overs and it makes a ton. Don’t be too heavy-handed on the soy sauce, though, you can always more in the individual dish.

Surprise Fried Rice

Surprise Fried Rice is adapted from Take-out Fried Rice on Recipezaar by Chef Dee.


3 cups cooked white rice

3 tablespoons sesame oil

1 12oz package of frozen vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)

1 small can pineapples, drained (I bought the rings and chopped them up)

½ ham steak (divide the rest into individual bags and freeze for later!)

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1/3 cup soy sauce


In a large skillet heat the sesame oil. Add the frozen vegetables. Stir ham and pineapple, continue to stir and cook until vegetables have softened. Lower the heat and add the beaten egg, stirring until it is finely scrambled. Add the soy sauce, and rice, blend well. Splash a little more sesame oil over the rice if necessary.
