Bloggers are encouraged to participate in all three categories. One winner will be selected from each category and be awarded $500.00. The winning recipes from each category will then compete to see who becomes the $1,000.00 grand prize winner of the “Frick’s Blogger Recipe Challenge.”
My first entry for the Blogger Recipe Challenge is Grilled Asian BBQ Bone-In Ham with Ham Fried Rice, qualifying for the On The Grill Category. Made with an Asian BBQ sauce and served with easy ten minute Ham Fried Rice, the recipe can be on your table in less than 45 minutes.
In return for submitting a few contest recipes in the FRICK’S Blogger Recipe Challenge, Frick’s® Quality Meats sent me three of their smoked ham products: Bone-in Half Ham, Gourmet Sliced Ham, and Shingled (sliced) Ham. Frick’s Quality Meat products also include Sliced Applewood Quarter Ham and Turkey Drums.

1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon soy sauce
pinch chili flakes
2 teaspoon ground pepper
For the Ham Fried Rice:
2 cups chopped ham (1 thick slice cut from ham before cooking)
4 cups “day old” cooked rice (I use the precooked version found in the rice isle at the grocery for easy prep)
2 tablespoons scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup chopped scallions white and green parts
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup frozen baby peas

Combine hoisin, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, soy sauce and chili flakes in a medium sauce pan and heat till mixture begins to boil. Add the pepper and stir to combine, reduce heat, and keep warm.
Place the unwrapped ham in an aluminum foil lined disposable foil roasting pan
Ladle or brush 3/4 cups Asian BBQ sauce all over the ham and place ham cut side down. Tent the foil over the ham and cook for 40 minutes on the grill. Keep an eye of the grill temperature to maintain 350-400.
