Ingredients

· 1 teaspoon vegetable oil· 1/4 cup (1/4" cubed) ham steak (about 1.5 ounces)· 1/4 cup finely chopped onion· 1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper (any color)· 3 large eggs· 1 tablespoon whole milk· 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt· 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper· 1/4 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (about 1 ounce)

Instructions

Step 1Preparation Heat oil in a medium (preferably 10") nonstick skillet over medium. Cook ham, onion, and bell pepper, stirring often, until softened and beginning to brown, 5–7 minutes.Step 2Meanwhile, whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.Step 3Reduce heat to medium-low and shake pan so that ham and vegetables form a single layer. Pour egg mixture over ham and vegetables, then sprinkle cheese over. Cook, tilting skillet and gently running a rubber spatula around edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, until eggs are mostly set, about 5 minutes.
