  • 2 cups diced Baby Boomer Little Potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1 (8 oz) package diced ham (1 cup)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2-3 tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 4 green onions, sliced


  • Cut up Little Potatoes into bite-sized pieces and dice onion.
  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add in diced onion and Little Potatoes. Season with salt and white pepper.
  • Cook and stir until onions are soft and translucent and potatoes are tender and golden brown. Then stir in diced ham
  • Cook until ham begins to brown and get a little crispy. Remove mixture from pan. Over medium heat, add in beaten eggs to skillet. Scramble eggs and season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Once eggs are cooked, stir in cooked rice. Then add soy sauce. Note: I like using light soy sauce because it has a lower sodium level. So I can add in additional sauce without worrying it will become too salty. Add in additional soy sauce depending on your tastes.
  • Then, stir in frozen peas and carrots. Stir, then add back in potato mixture. Turn temperature down to medium-low. Stir again and cover to allow peas and carrots to get tender.
  • Add sliced green onions on top just before serving.
