Two Tips for Leftovers for When You Don’t Feel Like Cooking – Super Good Ham and Eggs Fried Breakfast Rice

It’s still too hot to cook! The temperature outside has hit
triple digits and for someone who loves to cook, I mostly want to use shortcuts and time savers. But, only if they really work to keep me out of the kitchen AND, they have to taste super good! 

This recipe is a perfect
example of how to save time while eating better every day… (tip #1) I sometimes order an
extra two to four servings of fried rice to go when it’s on the menu, because
it makes such a good and easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner the next day, all warmed up and added to
chopped ham (and with 2 more eggs if you prefer). Otherwise, it’s well worth making
from scratch. Especially if you have (tip #2) leftover white rice from another recipe. I simply double the
rice when I cook it and save the extra for another recipe. Here’s how you
can have delicious food when it’s too hot to cook…Original Full recipe provided.
