Why You'll Love This Recipe

While we had a lot of leftover ham from Christmas, I have been making all kinds of ham recipes, this Ham & Veggie Scramble is included! I love making a good scramble. One of the reasons I love scrambles is because they are so much easier to make than omelettes and they taste just as good. If you've ever had an omelette gone bad, you just turn it into a scramble!

I also love making scrambles because you can literally eat them for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner! They’re filled with veggies and protein so they fill you up. They are also a blank canvas, as you can add any kind of veggies and protein into them and it's always delicious. We made a few different types of ham and veggie scrambles over the past couple weeks, but this one was one of my faves. I added mushrooms, red onion, and orange bell pepper along with ham. Another combo we made that was really good was mushrooms, scallions, and ham. You could also add cheese to this ham and veggie scramble if you wanted as well and it would be delicious!

The trick to making the best scramble is to cook your veggies first. You want to make sure they are almost completely cooked before adding in the eggs. Because the eggs cook so quickly, the veggies need to cook first, otherwise they’ll be under cooked. You can use butter or oil to cook the veggies, whatever you prefer, though I usually use butter as that’s what I cook my eggs in. If you want to add cheese, add 1 to 2 ounces of shredded cheese in when you add in the eggs.

You can also add toppings to your scramble like ketchup or salsa, depending on what you like. If you know me then you know I am a Midwest girl and it’s ketchup all the way!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
