Green Eggs and Ham

I do love Green Eggs & Ham! Here is my take on a classic breakfast dish. By adding pesto, ham and a pinch of chilli flakes, take your scrambled eggs to the next level.

6 free-range eggs

2 heaped tbsp of basil pesto

¼ cup cream

¼ cup grated parmesan, plus extra to grate on top

Good pinch of chilli flakes, plus extra to sprinkle on top

Good pinch of black pepper, plus extra to sprinkle on top

25g butter, plus extra to spread

150g ham, chopped into thin slices

2 thick slices of sourdough bread

Fresh basil leaves, to garnish


1. Crack eggs into a bowl. Add the pesto, cream, grated parmesan, chilli flakes and pepper. Whisk until combined.

2. In a frying pan over medium-low heat, add the ham and cook stirring for 2 to 3 minutes or until the ham is starting to colour.

3. Add the egg mix to the pan and, using a spatula, gently bring the mix in towards the middle, continuously scraping around the edges for 2 to 3 minutes or until the egg is just cooked.

4. Toast your sourdough and butter generously. Place onto a plate top with the green eggs and ham. Mix and finish with a sprinkle of black pepper and chilli flakes. Garnish with fresh basil.
