Directions

Using a small bowl beat the eggs and the black pepper with a fork. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan until it is almost smoking. Add the green onions and stir for 15 seconds. Reduce heat to medium and add the eggs stiring until they are barely cooked, then add the rice and stir until the eggs, onions and rice are evenly mixed. Add the soy sauce, ham and vegetables.

Notes

Instead of ham you can use almost any leftover meat or seafood -- turkey, chicken, roast pork, shrimps...
