As you can guess from our name, we at Hobe’s Country Ham think that ham makes a great dish for any occasion. In particular, we want to highlight the virtues of ham as a breakfast option, as it has just as much to offer as its more well-known cousin, bacon. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why we believe ham steak is truly the breakfast of champions.
- It has great protein. As you may remember from your biology or health classes, protein is the nutrient that’s most responsible for long-term energy. This means that it’s a good idea to start your day with a serving of protein in order to keep your energy high throughout the day. Ham steak offers a hearty portion of this essential nutrient to give you the energy you need.
- It’s easy to cook. Another reason that we at Hobe’s Country Ham encourage you to try ham steak for breakfast is that it’s simple to cook. We understand that no one wants to have to fuss with complicated recipes when they’re in a hurry, but ham steak doesn’t require a lot of prep work to get good results. You can simply cook the steak in a skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 3-5 minutes to heat through. Some fry ham steak in shortening or bacon grease, but you can also add it to an ungreased pan and let it cook in its own drippings.
- It’s versatile. The third reason that we at Hobe’s Country Ham believe that ham steak is the breakfast of champions is that it’s highly versatile. It makes a great addition to an omelet or breakfast biscuit, and you can easily use leftover portions for lunch or dinner.
