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.

You can’t go wrong with eggs and ham and then add a bit of onion and you have a perfect entree for brunch. In fact I enjoy this recipe so much that I could have it for lunch or dinner. Love that you use onion with it. You have a winner here.
