Hawaiian Fried Rice

Turn your day-old rice into a complete one-pot meal! This Hawaiian Fried Rice loaded with ham, bacon, pineapple, eggs, and veggies is ready in minutes yet turns out so hearty and tasty. A guaranteed family favorite!

I love cooking, but if I can be out of the kitchen in half the time, I’m all for it. One of my favorite meal prep hacks is freezing steamed rice. I usually cook double the amount I can consume in one meal and save the remaining half for stir-fries.

This trick has saved me plenty of time and stress, especially in times when G and I are hungry for a quick hot dinner. I have many delicious ways to revamp my pack of day-old rice into tasty fried rice but this Hawaiian version is our current favorite.

Hawaiian fried rice is quick and easy to make and customizable, too. As with most fried rice recipes, it’s a great way to use up protein and veggies we have on hand. Juicy pineapples and diced ham are a must for the tropical flavors, but carrots, bamboo shoots, chicken, and BBQ pork are also good additions.

How to store leftovers

Transfer leftovers to a container with lid and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
Reheat in the microwave at 2 to 3-minute intervals until completely warmed through, stirring well between each interval.
