A healthier take on the typical English breakfast, great for a weekend brunch with this Serrano ham and spinach eggs recipe. The bacon has been substituted with the yummy Serrano ham, and the eggs are accompanied by some deliciously green garlic and chili 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. I would advice to accompany all with a slightly toasted rye & wheat sourdough bread slice.

- Step 3 Let them wilt for a few minutes at a low/medium temperature.
- Step 4 In the meantime in a smaller pan sprinkle some olive oil, bring to heat and add the ham slice until crispy.Add the eggs and let them cook for a few minutes. Serve together with the slightly toasted bread. Enjoy!
Healthy tip it would be lovely to add some homemade freshly squeezed orange juice to add some vitamin C and other nutrients, but watch those sugars!
