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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

These stacks are wonderful! I had them with vegetarian ham-style slices and pineapple rings (along with the juice). All the great flavors of breakfast are packed into these and they smell really terrific while cooking. Send more stacks! Read More

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 english muffins). I forgot to saute a shallot so I just fried a piece of ham spinach on top and 1 egg over easy. I topped it with a little hot sauce as well. I know I changed it alot but I had to for my diet. I really enjoyed that there was spinach on it to add fiber in the meal. Thanks. Read More

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 bit more spinach since 5 leaves person is not much. I thought the flavors in this were wonderful. Just don't forget to salt and pepper your eggs and the spinach mix or it may be a little bland;) Read More

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 for me in the morning but a good amount to fill me up. I couldn't taste the sauce very much though. So another day I tried just the ham eggs and sauce (no shallots or biscuit) and it was perfect for me. It was a little quicker to make and I could taste the sauce more. I'll probably make this again. Read More

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 ingredients. Wow! Unbelievably tasty with just the shallots and spinach on the eggs 'n' ham! Read More

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. Read More

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

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 the microwave if they aren't done together. I knew those little cans of pineapple juice would come in handy! Read More

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