Procrastinating Dad's Ham 'n' Egg Scramble

So, what does the single father do after his family’s Saturday morning activities and it’s been a while since he’s done any grocery shopping?

The kids are hungry, and you know you’re out of cold cuts and bread. There’s no canned soup or other meals-almost-ready to eat (MARE’s) You check the fridge, and, other than condiments, all you have are a hand full of eggs, a few slices of cheese, some packaged diced ham that seems to have been in your freezer forever, and an onion or a couple of stray scallions in the vegetable crisper. After that, the cupboard is bare.

Well, either you consult The Single Father’s Guide to Life, Cooking, and Baseball for some ideas, or you make ham ‘n’ cheese scrambled eggs.

The Procrastinating Dad’s Ham ‘n’ Cheese Scrambled Eggs Lunch

4-6 eggs

1 package (12 - 16 ounces) of diced ham

3-4 slices of cheese

1-2 diced scallions (or onion)

1 tablespoon of horseradish

1 teaspoon of black pepper

1 spritz of cooking spray or 1 teaspoon of olive (vegetable) oil

Pre-heat pan to low-medium setting and apply cooking spray or oil. Add diced ham and brown. In a mixing bowl, combine and wisk eggs, horseradish, and black pepper. Pour mixture over browning ham, add cheese and scallions, and stir with a spatula until cooked.

This quick and easy, high-protein, emergency recipe will tide you and two or three kidlings until you’re able to get to the grocery store.

Now, get to the damned grocery store!
