Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 6 oz smoked ham steak, diced
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 8 large eggs

Instructions

  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over MED heat.  Add olive oil, then add onion and both bell peppers.  Cook, stirring often, until tender, but still vibrant, about 3 minutes.

  • Use a rubber spatula and cook, stirring frequently, until eggs bind with the onions, peppers and ham and eggs appear scrambled and wet, but no longer runny.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Remove from heat, sprinkle with cheese and cover loosely with foil.  Serve hot.
