Here’s a fun recipe. I love trying new things. One day I was messing around with Pineapple Pico, something i’ve only had with Chicken or seafood.
But then it hit me! What if I used it with pork? I mean pineapple and pork have a long history! These two unlikely lovers have been paired for hundreds of years.
I love diner food and a staple at any diner is fried ham. Something about that nicely browned ham served with a side of scrambled eggs makes my southwestern heart swell!
So I decided to follow the Hawaiian combo and make this deliscious dish!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Ham Steak (something like 6-8 ounces).
2. 2 -3 eggs for scramblin’ (or try them over medium)
3. Pineapple Pico:
1 Medium Jalapeno
Half of a cup of chopped pineapple (canned is fine fresh is better)
Fourth of a cup of onion
One Roma Tomato
1 tablespoon of cilantro ( if you don’t like cilantro you can leave it out)
1. Fry the Ham on medium in a small frying pan until it browns to your desire.
2. Scramble the eggs over a medium heat stirring until they no longer are wet. While they are cooking devote all of your attention to stirring them don’t look away because they will burn.
Chop tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, pineapples and fresh cilantro and mix in a bowl.
You are ready to eat!
This diner dish is perfectly paired with a dark cup of Coffee or if you want to change it up maybe a nice glass of Orange juice. Happy dining!
