Found a recipe at About.com:Chinese Food for Fried Rice With Ham that I modified to fit what I had on hand. Turned out quite good. Will certainly fix it again.

Ingredients:

* 2 eggs
* 1/2 tablespoon butter
* 2 teaspoons soy sauce (approximately)
* Salt and pepper, to taste
* 1/2 cup frozen bell peppers and onions (approximately)
* 8 ounces cooked ham (approximately)
* 1 green onion, washed
* 6 tablespoons oil for frying, or as needed
* 1 cup canned mixed vegetables (half a can)
* 4 cups cold cooked rice

Preparation:
Lightly beat the eggs. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce (or not and add it all to the rice at the end as I did). Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Dice the ham and green onion.

Heat a wok or frying pan on medium-high to high heat. When the pan is hot, add 2 tablespoons oil and 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Add the eggs. Scramble till lightly set and remove from the pan. Clean any leftover egg bits out of the pan.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the pan or wok. When the oil is hot, add the bell peppers and onion. Stir-fry till tender or as you like them, then add the ham and the mixed vegetables. Stir-fry and remove from the pan.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in the pan or wok. Reduce the heat to medium and add the rice, stirring to break up the clumps. Stir in the remainder of the soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Add the cooked meat and vegetables back into the pan. Stir in the scrambled egg. Heat through and stir in the green onion. Serve hot.
