1 1/2 cup Spinach
10-12 Fresh Chives
10-12 Fresh Basil leaves
1 tsp salt & pepper
2 tbsp butter
8 slices Smoked ham
1. Blanch the spinach and squeeze out the excess water from the spinach.
2. Using a blender or food processor, puree the spinach with the eggs, fresh herbs, salt & pepper until smooth.
3. Melt 1 tbsp of the butter into the hot pan and fry the slices of ham until theyâ€™re golden in colour.
4. Over medium heat, add the remaining butter then add the egg mixture once the butter has melted. Gently stir the eggs constantly using a heatproof rubber scraper or a wooden spoon. Once the eggs have set and cooked to a moist, light & fluffy texture, place onto the cooked ham.
***For a decorative presentation, wrap the ham around a metal pastry cutter or metal measuring cup. Tie the ham in place using butchers twine. Place into oven for an additional minute. Then fill with the scrambled green eggs.
