Eggs and Ham — A Winning Combo

eggs and ham

Eggs and ham at the Purple Pig -- a classic.

A place called the Purple Pig should know a thing or two about serving meat up right, and I’ve always enjoyed the cured meats there.  In fact, I was recently reminded that sometimes the simplest classic combos are the best.  The Purple Pig’s take on eggs and ham, for example, is worth a mention in and of itself. Served on a think slice of toast and garnished with greens, it is by far the best dish I’ve tried there.

I hate to admit that I’d never have ordered the eggs and ham on my own because it initially struck me as the token non-adventurous eater option on the menu. But I stand corrected. With quality ingredients, and a touch of creativity in presentation, even an old standby can taste brand new.
