Ham and eggs is a classic breakfast combination. They are two breakfast items that were made for each other. Frying the ham caramelizes the sugar, giving it a wonderful crust which is perfectly complimented by the creaminess of the fried eggs. Add some red chili flakes for a little heat and you have a breakfast made in heaven. Better yet it is not only tasty, but it is also packed with enough goodness to get you through to lunch!
Fried Ham and Eggs
- 1 Ham steak
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tbsp Ghee (or coconut oil, divided)
- Salt (to taste)
- Black Pepper (to taste)
- Red chili flakes (optional)
- 1 tbsp Fresh parsley (chopped)
Heat 1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the ham steak and fry on both sides until brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add the remaining 1 tbsp of butter to the pan you used for the ham and return to the heat. Crack 2 eggs in the pan and fry until they reach the desired level of doneness, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the fried eggs on top of the ham steak. Sprinkle with red chili flakes (optional) and garnish with fresh parsley.
