Breakfast Fried Rice

In Thai cooking this dish is called “gold and silver rice,” but since I have it at breakfast, I use a different name.  It works great as a extra dish for a brunch.  I left out the Thai chilies because my palate can’t take heat in the morning.  It has breakfast meats, veggies, and rice to last you until lunch.
Hope you like it.
Breakfast fried rice:
2 cups rice (Cold rice works but freshly cooked rice does not.  Rice from leftover Chinese food would work well.)

1/4 cup diced ham
3 eggs, beaten
1 onion, diced
1 parsnip, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 carrot, diced
2 green onions, chopped thin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch green onion, chopped
1 teaspoon oyster sauce (optional since it’s very high in sodium)
