A Little Ham Goes A Long Way ~ Farm Fresh Breakfast


"What smells like heaven?" asked my 11 year-old daughter walking through the kitchen this morning.

A small amount of leftover ham made us a delicious farm fresh breakfast.  Although, the ham was not farm raised pork, it will be in our near future.  We had planned to raise one this year, but the repairs and other work got ahead of us.

Simply take a few home grown potatoes, and fry them in a small amount of oil until browned,


Dice some leftover ham,


Chop fresh green onion from your herb garden,


And scramble some farm fresh, organic eggs from your chickens.


Add them to the fried potatoes, cook until the eggs are firm, and enjoy!

Sounds like a perfect breakfast... I am with your daughter - things just taste better with a bit of ham.
