Greens & Ham Breakfast Bowls (keto)


  • 8-10 ounces ham, diced or turkey ham or steak if you try not to eat pork
  • 1 large bunch swiss chard, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • soft-boiled eggs
  • Hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper


There is really only a few ingredients in this bowl. You could, of course, add other veggies, but I recommend going heavy on the greens. If you don’t have any swiss chard, you could use kale or just a metric ton of spinach. Just get it in there.
Ham Breakfast Bowl ingredients
Three ingredient bowls!
This is the amount of chard I used for one serving. It’s about 3 cups of chopped chard.
I cut off the very thick stems but left the thinner parts of the stem. They give some nice texture to the bowl.

A quick chop!

Cooking the Dish

This is pretty straightforward to make. If you use a large skillet and start the heat on medium-low you don’t actually need to add any oil to the pan. The ham has plenty of fat and will do just fine without oil.
If your ham is very lean or something though you might want to add a drizzle of oil.  Either way, just cook the cubed ham until it’s browned a bit and starting to crisp.

No oil needed!
Then toss in the onions and chard. Assuming you rinsed your chard (you should rinse your chard), the water sticking to the chard will create some steam and wilt the veggies.
After a few minutes of cooking you’ll be left with something like this!

The Egg

The egg is very important to this breakfast bowl, but it’s not really important how you cook the egg. I soft-boiled mine, but you could also poach the egg or also just fry it over-easy.
I made two eggs but accidentally cracked one while I was soft-boiling it.  OOPS.
This is my breakfast changing walkthrough on the perfect soft-boiled egg.

Accidentally dropped one!
When the eggs are done, just pile your bowl base into a large bowl.
I somehow created the illusion that this bowl is floating in the ether for this photo.  It is not.  It is on a white tablecloth.  Float on you crazy breakfast bowl.

Then add on your egg and half an avocado, sliced up.  Drizzle the whole thing with some hot sauce (optional) and a pinch of salt and pepper and dig in.
