Eggs with Serrano ham and wilted spinach

Serrano ham & spinach breakfast eggs | The Healthy Gourmet

This breakfast eggs with Serrano ham and wilted spinach recipe is a healthier take on the typical English breakfast, and it is great for a weekend brunch with or light lunch.  The bacon has been substituted with the yummy Serrano ham, and the eggs are accompanied by some deliciously green garlic and chili spinach.

How to cook the Italian spinach

The idea is also not to fry, but gently wilt the spinach for a few minutes only, to retain flavor, nutrients and not to burn the oil. Likewise, a thin Serrano ham slice will give lots of flavor without loading on empty calories. 

What to have it with

I would advice to accompany all with a slightly toasted rye & wheat sourdough bread slice.

Perfect for brunch or light lunch

This recipe is easy, delicious and very versatile. It can constitute a hearty breakfast or a light meal, according to your need of the day. Perfect for a weekend brunch!

How to make these Serrano ham Breakfast Eggs
