Low Carb Ham Scramble

Real Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

Preparation time: 10 minutes. Serves 2



  • 1 1/2 teaspoon each of butter and vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of diced cooked ham (or bacon or chicken)
  • 1-2 tablespoons diced green pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 4 eggs (Now, if you want to reduce the carbs even more you can use egg whites only, no yolks. See a fun way to separate the yolks below.)
  • 2-4 ounces of Hollandaise Sauce



  • Heat the butter and the oil over low heat in a skillet
  • While the pan is heating, beat the eggs in a small bowl with a wire whip until blended
  • When the butter and oil are hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the ham, green pepper and onion and saut√© briefly, stirring and shaking the pan often
  • Add the eggs and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally as the eggs cook (do not let eggs get brown)
  • Salt and pepper, if desired
  • Remove eggs in the pan by dividing and sliding onto two plates
  • Top with Hollandaise Sauce
