This recipe is easy to prepare, super hearty and delicious for breakfast or dinner. Serve with fresh salsa for a tasty compliment to the creamy egg filling. To serve as a terrific dinner, add a crisp side salad, whole grain bread and a glass of milk – how simple is that?


Preheat broiler. In a 10-inch (25 cm) non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add potatoes, green onions and peppers; cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender, stirring often.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk eggs, milk, mustard and pepper; stir in ham and pour over potato mixture. Cook, until eggs are almost set but still moist, about 10 minutes, occasionally lifting edges with a spatula and tilting pan to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. Sprinkle with cheese.

Broil until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Run a spatula around the outside and invert onto a serving plate; cut into wedges.

Tip: If your skillet is not oven proof, wrap handle in tin foil.
Tip: Use yellow-flesh potatoes for the sweet potatoes and for some heat add ½ tsp (2 mL) of hot pepper flakes.
