Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 3 Ounces Spam, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons pesto sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for garnish

Directions

In a bowl, whisk together eggs until well combined.

Add the butter to a skillet over medium heat and once melted add in eggs. Season eggs with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook eggs about half way through (about 3 minutes) Stirring often with a wooden spoon. Add the Spam, pesto, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and keep stirring until the eggs are fully cooked through.

Top with more cheese if desired and serve immediately. 

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
