Ham, Apple, Sweet Potato, Egg Scramble

I haven’t always been a breakfast person, but protein rich breakfasts sure give me a boost of energy and keep me going strong throughout the day. This meal is actually perfect for any time of the day…I love it for dinner as well. I pretty much love any type of egg & meat scramble, but this one was terrific! I’ll have to double the recipe next time!

Ham, sweet potatoes, tart granny smith apples, a diced shallot and freshly scrambled eggs. Yummy!

And…there’s more…I added a couple dashes of Watkin’s cinnamon, TraderJoe’s Seasoning Salute, and a little salt and pepper to really boost the flavor. You’ll love how these different flavors come together in one yummy dish. I just love cooking with my cast iron skillet – it was my husband’s great grandmother’s skillet, so there’s a lot of love going into this meal.

Cooking and eating delicious, healthy meals doesn’t need to be complicated. This one is super-easy and not too time consuming. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

**I made the mistake of not using a separate pan to scramble the eggs…my eggs turned a grayish color because of the oils etc from the skillet…which is why you don’t see eggs in my finished dish! Yes, I ate them…I just didn’t get a picture with them.                                      I suggest using a separate pan 🙂
