Hawaiian Fried Rice

I simply love using up leftovers, ‘waste not want not right’? There’s something truly satisfying about using up every last bit of a meal. Creating new and inventive ways to use up the leftovers makes me feel like I’ve accomplished a huge task. 


If you’d like to try Minute® Ready to Serve products for yourself, simply hover over the photo above to click through to for purchasing. So easy!

Take ham for example, down to the very last bits I do my best to find creative and tasty ways to utilize all of it. Plus it helps with the budget, leftovers are a great way to stretch the grocery budget.

Not to mention the fact that many recipes using leftovers are quick and simple. This brings me to a wonderfully easy meal that I just have to share with you today, Hawaiian Fried Rice. 

This recipe nicely used up the remaining portion of some ham I had in the fridge. I tossed the cubed pieces into a skillet along with some pineapple just to warm it all up and get a little caramelization happening. A drizzle of Teriyaki Sauce and a little bit of sliced green onion and that’s it. 

Oh, but I did serve it over a bed of delicious rice. Friends, with a quick and easy dish like this you need quick and easy rice too. This is when I reached into my pantry for Minute® Ready to Serve Garlic & Olive Oil Jasmine Rice. The rice added just a touch more of subtle flavor to this meal. 

When I say quick and easy I mean it! Pop Minute® Ready to Serve rice into the microwave for 90 seconds. Just fluff with a fork and you can serve immediately. Great for a quick lunch, a better-for-you-snack or an easy add-on to dinner. Pop some veggies into Minute® Ready to Serve rice if you desire, it is gluten-free and contains no preservatives.

Minute® Ready to Serve rice is good to go anytime, anywhere. With school, work, social time and everything else I have to tackle I love the convenience of Minute® Ready to Serve rice. Great for on-the-go, busy lifestyles like mine. 

I stocked my pantry shelf with Minute® Ready to Serve rice varieties last time I was at Walmart. You’ll find it located in the rice aisle. It is available in these three NEW great flavors: Cilantro & Lime Jasmine Rice, Southwest Pinto Beans with White Rice and Vegetables, and Garlic & Olive Oil Jasmine Rice. These varieties are available in 7 oz. larger single cup packs.
