Creamy Scrambled Eggs & Ham



This is a much loved breakfast dish around here. Perfectly cooked eggs with a touch of cream cheese and salty ham bites. Although, I am not sure if I'm writing this recipe down to share, or so that my daughter can look it up years from now when she goes off to college and wants to make this old family favorite. Maybe a bit of both.

This idea makes me wonder about all this food blogging stuff. Will there be a vast library collection later of the work we do today? What will it be used for? It’s amazing to watch the information compound and the technology grow at this rapid rate. In many ways, food blogging is still in its infancy, and we are all paving the path for the future. So the question here is, where do we want this to go?

The future of food blogging is fascinating to think about.

Ingredients
4 Eggs
2 teaspoons water
½ teaspoon dried parsley
Sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper
About 1 teaspoon butter
1/3 cup chopped deli ham
1 ounce (2 Tablespoons) cream cheese, cut into small pieces

Instructions
1. In a bowl beat together eggs, water, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper.

2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and scramble into good sized pieces. Add the chopped ham while the egg mixture still looks wet. After the eggs look dry add the cream cheese pieces and stir to coat and warm through. Serve immediately.

Serves 2

Interesting question, indeed. Perhaps I'll ponder it over a plate of these awesome eggs!

I really like the addition of cream cheese here!

Cream cheese with scrambled eggs - will definitely be trying this soon! Sounds very intriguing.

Cream cheese is my favorite trick for scrambled eggs, but I never seem to have any on hand when I make them :(. As always, your photo is awesome!

Mmm. Looks like the perfect breakfast food to me.

I always think it's great to get recipes down on paper -- even if they're old standards. You never know when a dish is going to fall out of your regular repertoire... you might need to read the directions someday! :)

Scrambled eggs and ham define my youthful travels abroad. TKS for the memory! GREG

Eggs and ham has always been a favorite for me as well, although usually the craving is induced by memories of Dr. Seuss!

I just went to a conference recently where digital archiving was the major topic, and the food panel brought up this exact question. Instead of handmade, handwritten cookbooks complete with personalized stamps or letterhead, folks are using computers to share and memorialize food in a way that hasn't been seen since the painstaking days of recipe notebooks. I wonder if the increase in food blogging is responsible for much of the post-Pollan Omnivore's Dilemma/In Defense of Food ponderings on what we eat.

In other news, did you hear that Pollan is coming to the WSU campus this year?

Wow, I would have loved to be at that conference! I have been wondering that myself. Michael Pollan has had a huge impact on all of this, including me.

He is?? I will be keeping my eyes peeled!
