This is a fantastic one-pan dish that’s perfect for breakfast, when I’m invariably in a rush to get my dawdling kids ready for school and out the door. I’d kill for enough free time to make a leisurely morning meal, but when I’m crunched for time, I’ll just grab some Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Kalua Pig from the fridge and toss it in a hot skillet with some eggs.

Steps:

Crack the eggs into a bowl, and season with a pinch of salt. (Go easy with the salt—the Slow Cooker Kalua Pig and prosciutto are already seasoned, remember?) Heat the ghee in a small cast iron skillet over high heat, and tear the prosciutto slices (if using) into medium-sized pieces.
