Spam Fried Rice

Spam might be an aquired taste. But! It's cheap and it is easy to use. I have found ways to use it that are hits in my family. These recipes camouflage the spaminess. Fried rice is an easy Sunday dinner. I start the rice in my cooker just before we leave for church. I also cook the vegetables and spam before we leave. When we get home, I put the refrigerated veggies and meat in a pan, heat them up, add the still warm rice and then add the egg. It goes together in about 15 minutes; just enough time for all of the kiddos to be out of their church clothes and gathered around the table with forks in hand.
1 Tbls oil
1 chopped onion
1 minced garlic clove
2-3 large carrots, chopped or sliced
any other vegetables that need to be used up
1 can Spam, diced
2 cups rice cooked with 4 cups water
2 eggs, beaten
2-3 Tbls soy sauce
Heat oil, saute onion, garlic and vegetables until soft. Add spam, heat through (I like mine a bit browned) Add cooked rice and soy sauce. When warmed, add beaten egg. It's done when the egg is cooked. Add more soy sauce to taste.

This sounds good! This would also be a great way to use up small amounts of other leftover meats too! I have a leftover chicken breast in the fridge from last night - I think I'll try it for lunch. Thanks! :-)
