  • 4 large potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • Spring onions, chopped
  • 120 grams of ham, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • Olive oil for cooking


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Start by peeling the potatoes and then grating them into thin strips. Place the grated potatoes in a clean cloth and squeeze out as much moisture as you can. This step is crucial for getting a crispy texture when cooked.
  2. Season the Mixture:
    • Transfer the grated potatoes into a mixing bowl. Add the diced ham, chopped spring onions, and the flour to the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until everything is well combined.
  3. Cook the Potato Mixture:
    • Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, spoon the potato mixture into the skillet, forming small pancake-like shapes. Flatten them slightly with the back of your spoon to ensure even cooking. Cook each side for about 4-5 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  4. Fry the Eggs:
    • In a separate pan, fry the eggs to your liking. A sunny side up or over-easy works wonderfully with this dish, but feel free to cook them according to your preference.
  5. Serve Hot:
    • Serve the crispy potato and ham cakes hot, topped with the freshly cooked eggs. Garnish with extra chopped spring onions if desired.

This Potato and Ham Breakfast Eggs dish not only delivers on flavor but also provides a filling and nutritious start to your day. It’s a simple recipe that allows for customization based on your personal taste or what you have available in your pantry. Enjoy your culinary creation and the perfect kick-start to your morning!
