Lets Cook Mexican

Huevos con Jamón (Eggs with Ham)

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

Difficulty: Easy

Prep 5 min

Cook 10 min


  • 7 eggs in a bowl slightly whisk
  • 5 slices of ham cut into little squares
  • 1 big tomato finely chopped
  • Half an onion finely chopped
  • Half Serrano chilli seeds off and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Put the rapeseed oil on a frying pan on medium heat and add the ham and vegetables and cook them for 5 min.

The onion has to be transparent and the tomato has to have a sauce consistency, add the eggs, and cook, folding the eggs over in large curds occasionally, until cooked through, for about 3 to 5 minutes.

You can have them with some refried black beans and warm corn tortillas for the complete Mexican breakfast experience!
