2 tablespoons butter

One 5-inch-wide piece of country ham 

Honey, for brushing 

3 thick pieces breakfast sausage 

3 thick slices bacon 

2 large eggs 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Crispy Bits Breakfast Potatoes, recipe follows

Crispy Bits Breakfast Potatoes:

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 pounds red potatoes

1/4 cup olive oil 

4 tablespoons butter, melted 


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Brush the ham lightly with honey, then fry it until the texture is firm, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet.
  2. Next, fry the sausage and bacon together. The sausage is ready when browned nicely, about 3 minutes per side; the bacon is cooked when crisp, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet. Pour out the excess grease but do not wipe out the skillet.
  3. Add the second tablespoon of butter to the skillet and heat until melted. Crack the eggs into the skillet and fry for 2 minutes, sprinkling on some salt and pepper. Flip the eggs and cook them for another 45 seconds.
  4. Serve the eggs, sausage, bacon and ham on a platter, plus a pile of Crispy Bits Breakfast Potatoes.

Yield: 2 to 4 servings
  1. Bring salted water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the potatoes and boil until nearly fork-tender (but not falling apart), about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to dry thoroughly, then cut into wedges.
  2. Heat the olive oil with the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add the potatoes, sprinkle on some salt and pepper and pan-fry until golden brown and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes.
