A fun breakfast for kids to make (with supervision). I made this with my four year old at a "Kids Cook" type of business.

Thank you for sharing your recipe Mickey. We enjoyed this for brunch the other day. Quick and easy to make with lovely results. I found that the egg was a little heavy, next time I make this and there will be a next time, I will add a little cream to the egg before I pour it over the cheese and ham . Made for Spring Pac 2014.
