Offering a simple, one-pan breakfast, this recipe features ham browned in butter. Eggs are cracked on top and cooked until the whites have set. Serve it hot out of the pan with a side of hashbrowns or o'brien potatoes. Garnish it with fresh herbs, such as snipped chives, for a shock of color and added flavor, and feel free to customize the recipe with additions of your choice, including crumbled, cooked bacon, onions, tomatoes or cheese.

My kids served this to me (with the help of dad) as a kick-off breakfast to “mom’s day off!” Not only was I shocked but also the flavor combinations of this dish were great! They even made the diced, herbed potatoes! Now to serve them this 5 star breakfast in return!
