Spam Fried Rice - Erin

Stop making that face just because you saw Spam.  Everybody I've made try it has always liked it, so be brave and try it because Spam Fried Rice is delicious!  I make it differently from my mom, and I think she makes it differently from Tutu (our Grandma), so maybe one day we'll all get our own versions of Spam Fried Rice up here! 

what you will need

1 1/2 cups uncooked rice (or about 2 bags of Uncle Bens)
1 can Spam (we get the "lite" one, a little less greasy)
1 cup frozen peas
5 eggs
1 Tbsp soy sauce (or shoyu, depending on who's reading this!)
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp hoisin sauce

Cook your rice, or nuke your Uncle Ben's.  While that's going, slice the spam into about 1/8 inch slices and fry it in a pan to crisp it up.  Once it's fried, lay the pieces on a couple of paper towels to soak up the extra grease.  You can leave it there while you scramble the eggs.  Use a large frying pan, because you will mix everything together here.  After the eggs are done, cut the Spam slices into bite-sized pieces and add to the egg pan.  Add the rice, peas (I don't even bother thawing them), veggie oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce and hoisin, and give it a good stir.  Annnnnd devour.
