How Do You Like Your eggs?

If it’s up to me, I like my eggs scrambled 9/10 times and the 10th time is a toss up between sunny-side up and poached. I’ve begun to appreciate a runny yolk in a breakfast bowl over some hashbrown and toast!

You don’t have to go to a diner to satisfy for savory egg needs; you can easily cook eggs a variety of ways without fail with the help of my cooking eggs guide.

There’s something timeless about scrambled eggs and I love finding new ways to incorporate them into meals. They’re great alongside skillet potatoes or sweet potato fries, or even added to soup for extra protein.

I hope you enjoy this ham & eggs scramble and grow in confidence when it comes to cooking eggs!

How To: Make Homemade Croutons

Did you know that you can use day-old bread to make croutons at home??

I wish this was something I knew earlier because while I haven’t always liked salad, I have ALWAYS loved croutons ๐Ÿ˜ AND it reduces food waste by using up bread that would otherwise get thrown away!

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The goal is for the bread to dry out without burning, so it’s important to toss the cubes of bread in olive oil until most are coated.

Bake for 7-8 minutes, flip, and then continue baking 7-8 minutes until the bread is crunchy.

Set aside and try not to eat them all while preparing the rest of the food!

How To: Prepare ham & Scramble

First, cooking the ham steak.

Ham steaks are surprisingly easy to prepare and are so filling.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Cook the ham steak until it is brown on both sides, about 10 minutes per side. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each side. Remove from the pan and let cool before cubing.

In the same pan, add the onions and sweet peppers and saute until soft, about 6-8 minutes. They add great color and flavor the scramble!

Sweet peppers can be substituted for bell peppers or other mild peppers. Hot peppers can be used for an extra kick!

While the veggies are sauteing, whisk the eggs thoroughly in a medium bowl. Once the veggies are done, add the eggs into the pan and reduce the heat. Cook the eggs until they are softly scrambled.

Garnish with green onions and serve warm!

    Awesome, thanks for sharing! Scrambled eggs is my breakfast pretty much everyday (weekends I go omelettes), but I didn’t know how to make croutons I might try them now

    I absolutely love breakfast and eggs in particular. This recipe is my dream breakfast. The other ingredients are perfect including the croutons. – a different way to add bread. Thanks for sharing,

    Egg scrambles make an appearance in our house several times a week, with my SO working until 1 am and starting his day around lunch time. I love sending him off to work with a full tummy and this seems to be the way to do it. I love your addition of the homemade croutons!!

  4. I am a breakfast girl to the core! Eggs are my fav. I’ll take savory over sweet 98% of the time. Love this recipe b/c you can get your carbs, protein and veg all in one bite! It’s kinda like a panzenella for breakfast. Yum!

    I love learning new breakfast ideas! And this looks absolutely delicious ๐Ÿ˜€ I wish I’d read this sooner as I could have had it for my weekend breakfast treat (normally just have weetabixs before work during the week) – so looks like I’ll just have to wait till Saturday! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I had to read this after seeing the photo and wondering what the chunky pieces were. I would never have thought to make my own breadcrumbs for a casserole because I always use croissant rolls. I love this idea though. Looks so good I’ll have to try it.

    This looks amazing!!! Definitely one I can add to my simple uni meals repertoire. I had never considered putting other things with scrambled eggs before but I’m definitely going to try it because I’m a bit bored of plain eggs!! Brilliant! Xxx

  8. Wow this sounds scrumptious, itโ€™s making me hungry thinking about it ๐Ÿ˜‚ it looks so easy to make as well, I do love a good eggs Benedict now again with poached eggs. But I would certainly love to try this ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I love doing this sort of scramble with veggie leftovers but I haven’t included croutons before which sounds like a genius idea. I will have to give it a try!
