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.

Day old bread is the base for these dumplings that incorporate speck and onions for a savory flavor. The “soup” is just the broth in which the dumplings are cooked. Some sage would be a welcome addition.
