Notes
1. Leftover rice typically refers to cooked rice that's either day-old or has been refrigerated overnight at least.
2. You can substitute sesame oil with another type of oil to mix with the rice.
3. Since the spam is very salty, this dish only needs a little bit of seasoning.
4. Check in the post above for three tips to make the perfect egg fried rice.
