How did this Broccoli Ham Egg Cheese English Muffins recipe come along? The broccoli and diced ham were leftover. I assume you know me by now that I don't like to throw away any food. I must admit that leftover sometimes does give one headache. I always try my best to turn any leftover into a different dishes and make it another meal.
With the leftover, the rest of the ingredients are always available in the fridge or freezer. So, it came along pretty easily. Yes, I freeze the English Muffins when they are on sale. So, they come in handy, too.
What I love this recipe is that it is great for busy life that I run on 7 days a week, especially during school season. I am sure that many parents can relate to that. You have to run your kid(s) to sport games or other after school activities. Dinner happens to be at your back burner.
This breakfast idea is so easy. You can even wrap up the sandwiches individually and freeze them. When you are ready, pop a sandwich into the microwave and heat it up. There you have it. It is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the go.
I sometimes use very good quality smoked pork chops. Diced the pork chops just like the diced ham in this recipe. Brown the meat and follow the rest of the instructions to complete.
3-4 cups (21-28oz / 605-806g) Chopped Broccoli (A bag of pre-cut fresh broccoli florets would be a big time-saver. You can use frozen broccoli florets. If so, cook the vegetables while they are still frozen. This will ensure that they will still be crisp tender instead of watery and soggy.)
3 Scallion (chopped; optional)
2-3 cups (14-21oz / 403-605g) Diced Ham (The options are endless. You can use pre-diced ham, ham leftover, dice up a ham steak, smoked pork chops and so forth.)
12 Eggs (beaten)
8-12 English Muffin (Add more fiber in this breakfast idea, use whole wheat or whole grain English muffins.)
8-12 Sliced Cheddar Cheese
1/4-1/3 Cups (1.7-2.3oz / 51-67g) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
