Barb's Supreme Curried Ham and Egg Stacks

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"I just thought this up one morning, trying to think of something different to have for breakfast. Ham, spinach, fried eggs, pineapple-curry sauce makes a surprisingly yummy combination. Serve over toast or English muffins if you like."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, and cook until lightly browned. Remove from the pan, and set aside. Fry the ham slices in the same skillet just until browned on each side. As you turn the ham to brown on the second side, place the spinach leaves on top to steam a little. Remove from the skillet and place onto a plate or onto toasted English muffins, keeping the spinach on top.
  2. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the skillet. Crack the eggs in, and fry on each side to your desired degree of doneness. Place the eggs on top of the ham stacks.
  3. Return the shallots to the skillet, and season with curry powder. Gradually stir in pineapple juice, scraping the bottom of the pan to mix in all of the browned bits. Increase the heat to medium-high, and boil until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over the egg stacks and serve immediately.

I thought this was nice, I changed it a little however just because I was trying to have the fat content lowered a bit. I made it as an open faced sandwhich w one piece of toast (I had no engli...

SO very good! I thought the little pineapple caramelized drizzle was fantastic! I only had deli thin sliced ham so I cut that in strips and fried it up as in the directions. I added quite a b...

I thought this was okay. It didn't bedazzle my tastebuds, but I did give it another shot. The first time I made it exactly as the recipe said, and it was pretty good, seemed like a little much f...

I'm OK with all the ingredients but the pineapple, but I can understand using the juice if everything seems dry. I used the recipe without it, letting the curry work its magic with the other ing...

I am very happy with the results. This would be great for a special occasion, but way too much work for just an ordinary breakfast.

Really yummy - it is the curry sauce that makes this recipe. We also topped with pineapple slices.

This sounds great, but I might use a second pan for the sauce simultaneously or else make the sauce before the ham and eggs. Either way, it sounds like one or the other may need heating up in t...

Hubby won't mix sweet and savory so made without the sauce. Served over homemade French bread straight from the oven. Very good!
