Ever wonder what to do with that tail end of a ham? You know, that tough little piece that resembles a heel of bread. It's not quite enough to make soup with or anything else for that matter, but you'd definitely feel bad for tossing it out, right?!
Make a breakfast sandwich!
Start by finely dicing your ham. With a little oil or rendered bacon fat (my preferred choice) in a skillet fry the ham until the edges begin to get crispy.
Meanwhile toast an English muffin for each person. In a small mixing bowl scramble an egg for each person too. Add a little salt and pepper to taste.
Scramble the eggs into the ham. Once they are done cooking remove pan from heat and sprinkle about 2 to 3 Tbs. of grated sharp cheddar cheese across the top of the eggs.
While the cheese melts butter your English muffins. Divide your eggs and ham evenly and place on one muffin half, then top with the other.
Voile! A quick, simple and deliciously thrifty breakfast sandwich for a fraction of the cost of a ast food option. Tastes a lot better too.
To save even more I buy my eggs on sale (around 99¢ a dozen) and my English muffins from the bakery markdown bin. I figured it up one day and I can usually make a sandwich for less than 35¢. Not too shabby!
