1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter (or olive oil)
Pinch parmesan cheese (Chef Lizzie likes to use freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.)
- Crack 1 whole egg into mixing bowl.
- Crack second egg into small bowl; remove and discard the yolk.
- Add egg white of second egg to mixing bowl with whole egg. Scramble eggs with pesto.
- Tear the ham into bite-sized pieces.
Heat pan on medium heat. Add butter and move butter around to coat pan. Pour egg mixture into pan. Add ham pieces to egg mixture.
Slowly move eggs in the pan in a push/pull motion with spatula until cooked. Top with cheese.
