Ham, Egg & Cheese Scramble

This is one of those dishes that's not pretty.  It's a scramble, after all.  And it's also one of those dishes that I can't give you exact amounts.  But that's part of the fun, isn't it?

Here's the amounts I used today.  Your mileage may vary!

1 cup diced ham
1 T. butter
3 eggs lightly beaten and 1 t. water added
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese

In a medium skillet, over medium heat, add the butter and ham.  Stirring frequently, let the ham cook until it is well browned, about 5 - 6 minutes.

Turn the heat OFF.  One of the biggest mistakes of scrambling eggs is to cook them over high heat and to cook them too quickly.  This makes the eggs tough and rubbery.

Pour in the eggs and lightly salt and pepper.

Let the residual heat from the skillet begin to cook the eggs....then gently stir the eggs to blend in with the ham.  Sprinkle on the cheese....

And continue gently stirring until the cheese is melted.  Your eggs will be perfectly cooked.  Serve immediately.
