Steamed Smoked Ham and Egg

This is the last of the steamer recipes for a while. I really love my steamer so I will be breaking out again soon I am sure. It is just such an easy way to cook!

I broke this recipe into a single serving.

Here are your ingredients, this is so easy and so tasty.

For this recipe I get to make toast and I get to butter it using the butter I keep in my new favorite thing, my butter crock. This thing is awesome. You load it up with one stick of butter and then fill the crock with 1/3 cup of cold water. You turn the butter holding side upside down and set it inside the crock of water. The water creates an air tight seal and you can leave your butter out on the counter. Granted, you can leave your butter out on the counter ANYWAY but I will be darned if this thing isn't the cutest idea. Ok back to the recipe.

I did not use fresh spinach so I got to skip the blanching process.

I used my cute little pyrex container which I first sprayed with a little PAM. I added a little salt to the spinach also.

I admit that I have never bought ham before, I just never even thought to. I am strange like that about my shopping for meat, I stick with what I know, I need to get better about that. I will have a recipe to use the leftovers of the ham steak in my next post!

Cube it up.

The recipe calls for Cayenne, but I wanted to use this chili pepper instead because I love it.

Of course you need your egg too.

drop in the ham and break the egg over it.

sprinkle with your desired chili powder and drizzle some cream over it. I also hit it with a little bit of salt.

Pop it in the steamer for 6-8 minutes and toast up some bread.

This was DELICIOUS and so satisfying. I love eggs, I love dippy drippy egg yolk. I should have got a picture of when I pierced the yolk with my fork because the golden yellow goodness spreading over the other ingredients just made me smile.

I will definitely be making this again!


  1. uh yuck I hate drippy egg yolk. Oh and that butter thing is to cute. I would have one but peanut is addicted to butter and would most likely knock it off the counter and then eat all the butter and make himself sick. He has done that before.

  2. I am not a big fan of spinach but sure my dad will love this recipe!
    Have a great weekend

  3. Yay for the Pyrex dish! It is so cute. I got to use some of my tiny "single-serve" blue cornflower Corningware for a good purpose recently -- feeding my cat wet cat food while his gum healed. We both thought it a perfect solution!

  4. oh YUMMY and I love the butter crock and now have to have one. where did you find it?

  5. Waaaaaah, I can't use my Butter Bell anymore!! Since I have to watch my saturated fat intake so closely now, I had to give up butter and my Butter Bell!

    Maybe I'll give it to Sassy.

  6. You have inspired me to buy a steamer. It looks too simple. :)

  7. That steamer looks really cool. Does it work like a rice steamer?
