Method

  1. Mix the eggs and egg whites with some seasoning and set aside. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan and cook the pepper for 3-4 mins. Throw in the white parts of the spring onions and cook for 1 min more. Pour in the eggs and cook over a medium heat until almost completely set.
  2. Sprinkle on the ham and cheese and continue cooking until just set in the centre, or flash it under a hot grill if you like it more well done. Serve straight from the pan with the green part of the spring onion sprinkled on top and some wholemeal toast.

Enjoyed it a lot. Not sure where tomatoes are involved though...

Lovely for lunch with a handful of grilled cherry tomatoes!! I think I will add an extra egg next time, not enough for two people
