Huevos Con Jamon – This dish reminds me of my mom. She was the go, go, GO type. Always working and running around.
Many, many mornings, she would make this for us because it fit her busy schedule.
It’s ready in minutes. Involves very few ingredients. A TASTY and HEALTHY way to start the day.
Drizzle on top with your favorite Mexican salsa, and breakfast is ready!
- Ham slices
- Olive oil
Only 4 ingredients to make breakfast! Hallelujah! As you can see, this recipe will come together very quickly.
You can also add spices like ground cumin, ground oregano, garlic, or chiles like diced jalapenos or serrano peppers.
How to Make It
- Crack eggs into a bowl.
- Beat eggs.
Notice how there is no salt in this recipe. That’s because the ham is salty. Add salt if you feel it needs it.
This is also the time to add spices, if you are using them. Another great addition to this dish is CHEESE. For cheese, add at the end with the ham.
Is scrambled eggs and ham healthy?
Yes. Any breakfast that is full of protein like this one is good for you.
Add some veggies or only use egg whites to make it an even healthier breakfast. Also, it’s only 165 calories!
- Heat oil in a pan.
- Add onion. Cook for 1 minute.
- Add eggs to the pan.
- Immediately add the diced ham.
You can even make a big batch and save some for another day. Reheat and serve for an even quicker way to get the day started.
Word to the Wise: Have all your ingredients ready. Breakfast will be ready in a snap.
Cereal is also eaten in the mornings as is avena (or Mexican oatmeal)
- Stir constantly with a spatula.
- Do this until the eggs are fully cooked.
Stir with your spatula for 1 minute. Keep stirring so the eggs won’t burn. Then turn off the heat.
Even if the eggs are slightly runny, they will finish cooking in the hot pan.
