Tips for Ham Scrambled Eggs with Onion and Pepper
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.
Cook onion until softened
Add green pepper until warm through
Cook ham to warm through
Once the edge of the eggs set, use the spatula to pull it to the center. Repeat this step until eggs are set
You can cook the eggs a couple more minutes to brown. Otherwise, this is ready to serve
