I have often served this or a variation on Christmas morning. It is also good for a brunch or lunch.

I was looking for a quick recipe to use up some ham and 6 eggs, this was a good choice; served with a salad and enjoyed by all! I used dried herbs and the flavour combination was good. I added a little chopped fresh tomato to the mixture. The texture was smooth and creamy.
