I love a good ham fried rice. I also love that it is a great dish to make for leftover rice or ham! This version has a little Hawaiian twist on it!
This Hawaiian fried rice has items you would expect in a usual ham fried rice but with the addition of sweet Hawaiian pineapple! Fresh or canned with do!
If your family is a fan of Hawaiian pizza then they with definitely love this fried rice with Hawaiian flavor!
