Scrambled Eggs and Ham Review

Stop the presses, I didn't buy this one in a package. Well, I did. They just came in separate packages.
Not Green Eggs and Ham
Scrambled eggs and some type of lunch meat. I think it was black forest ham in circular slice configuration. And I threw in a piece of bread on the side of the plate for the extra calories and fiber.

Scrambled eggs except with ham crudely cut into rectangular-ish pieces before cooking. I used a small non-stick pot and an electric stove. The ham was sandwich meat that was pre-sliced into thin, circular slices. No spices of any kind were added during or after cooking.

In regards to the ham, I usually use whatever's available. No, that's not entirely true. I use whatever cuts of lunch meat are available, so it can be beef, chicken, turkey, or pork. Nice to mix it up every once in a while.

Taste and Verdict
They tasted just like scrambled eggs except with a lot more flavoring. The salt came right through, as did the taste of the lunch meat that I expected. This meat made everything slightly more chewy in a good way. With scrambled eggs alone, my usual preparation left them very soft with barely any need for chewing. I liked them much more than my usual bare eggs, not just because of the extra flavor, but also because it was more filling. Having some extra protein was much appreciated.

Unfortunately, I don't always make scrambled eggs with lunch meat because the meat isn't always available. There have been numerous instances where the meat was "lost" on a lower shelf in the fridge and left to go bad. Having to throw out a nice collection of lunch meat more than once now makes me think twice when buying meat. And that extra minute to get the slices out and cut them up can be a lot of work...
