  • 2 servings pre-cooked spiral ham pork shoulder roast, or 4-6 slices chopped deli ham
  • 6 pastured eggs
  • 1/8 cup full fat coconut milk or whole milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives or green onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup frozen spinach
  • 2 tablespoons ghee melted
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  • In a medium bowl whisk eggs with milk and salt and pepper. Mix in all herbs. Add chopped deli ham if using.
  • Melt ghee in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds. Add eggs and use a spatula to scramble mixture while it cooks.
  • Cook until eggs are done to your likeness, about 5 minutes. We prefer soft scrambled eggs and cook ours a little underdone.
  • Serve with a side of spiral ham or pork, if using.


*Depending on the time of year, sub the herbs used for whatever you have on hand. Dried herbs work too, but you will want to reduce the quantities since they have a stronger flavor.
**If you don't have pork on hand, or don't eat pork, sub with your favorite protein.
