Green Eggs & (Parma) Ham

This recipe is a wonderfully simple way to add fun, color and nutrients to an already-great breakfast.

First, the ham:
  • 1 pkg sliced prosciutto or serano ham
Peel the ham from the paper backing, spread on a baking sheet
Bake at 300 degrees until crisp.

Now, the eggs:
  • 1 or 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and mashed up
  • 6-8 fresh eggs
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves or cilantro, plus more for garnishing
  • dash of milk
  • salt and pepper to taste (the ham will add a lot of salt, so if anything, undersalt the eggs)
Blend the eggs, avocados, basil, and milk in a food processor or blender. Cook as you would scrambled eggs, or make into an omelet or frittata!

Arrange the eggs and ham side-by-side on your plate, top with chopped cilantro or chiffonaded basil.
