Holiday leftovers

I didn't have to cook this Christmas but I have leftovers. My mom made pork tenderloin and ham, among other things, and sent some leftovers home with us. We love leftovers! This weekend I made scalloped potatoes and ham...yummy! Tonight I made fried rice.

Fried rice is super easy to make and you can put almost any kind of meat in it.

First you steam some rice, it's better if you use regular rice, not Minute Rice. While the rice is cooking, scramble some eggs in a small frying pan. Cut up your leftover meat and, in large frying pan, fry it in some butter. When the meat is a little bit browned add some more butter and then the rice. Stir in the eggs. Add a little bit of soy sauce at a time, stirring in between until it looks like enough. Careful not to add too much soy sauce or it will be really salty. That's it!

The best way to make fried rice is with bacon (everything is better with bacon). Fry up some bacon and remove from pan. Drain all but a few tablespoons of the bacon grease from the pan and then add the rice, eggs and soy sauce. Crumble the bacon and add to rice mixture.

Fried rice is really good with pork egg rolls from the Schwan man!
