Huevos con Jamón


Breakfast at our house is the most important meal of the day, specially on the weekends, because we have the time to sit around the table and enjoy the lovely things I cook!

In Mexico, breakfast is almost sacred, everybody loves having something yummy that will make you keep going until lunch and that something is usually something with eggs. Today’s recipe is a lovely and delicious dish that my mum used to cook from time to time. Pieces of fried ham with a bit of onion, tomato and egg. Yum!

Well, I hope you like this lovely recipe X
