Ham/Apple/Sweet Potato Scramble

Gluten Free Ham/Apple/Sweet Potato Scramble:


  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1/2 lb. cubed ham
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder


  1. Chop onion and saute in a large frying pan or pot on medium heat. Let cook 3-4 minutes.
  2. Peel & dice the sweet potato & add to pot. Decrease heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until tender (meaning it’s not mushy, but you can stick a fork through it). It is best to stir occasionally.
  3. Peel, core & dice apple. Then add apple, ham, rosemary, salt, cinnamon, garlic powder & onion powder to pot. Cover and stir occasionally.
  4. Scramble eggs in a separate pan.
  5. When apples are tender and have been cooked to your liking, add scrambled eggs to the pot and mix together.
  6. Enjoy! Best served warm.

This gluten free scramble is super simple and an easy recipe to pull off in less than 30 minutes.  I first discovered it over at Paleo Newbie. I made a minor tweak with the seasonings by taking out a few and adding a bit of rosemary. I’ll admit, at first glance, the thought of cinnamon with onion powder, garlic powder, and rosemary is a little unusual. But in my opinion, it all comes together very well!

I’ll admit, the cooked apples have a tendency to draw skeptics. It’s not something you find in most recipes. But I think it really pulls the dish together. I say give it a try, and if you’re not a fan, don’t add apples the next time. (If you don’t add apples, I’d take out the cinnamon too.)

One thing to note about the apples: don’t let them cook too long, or they’ll get a bit mushy. Unless mushy is your thing, then great! Cook them as long or little as you prefer.
