I used 8 eggs in this meal. But if you have a big crowd, please feel free to add up to 12 eggs. Yes, the cook time will be longer, but just a few minutes longer, nothing significant at all.
This is a very filling and healthy meal. Not enough? Serve some hearty toasts along.
If you don't have any ham leftover, you can replace it with Canadian bacon or some ham steak.
Since the ham is very salty already, I highly recommend that you serve the salt and pepper on the side and let your guests to decide if more seasoning is needed.
