Green Eggs & Ham

We decided to holiday in the UK this year and what an excellent decision that turned out to be. You really can’t beat the UK when the weather is nice so first stop was a couple of nights at a lovely hotel “At the Chapel” in Bruton, Somerset. There was a really fun, young crowd working there in the most amazing space, serving delicious food and cocktails – what more could you ask for? Whilst there we had some memorable breakfasts including Green Eggs & Ham, so here I have tried to re-create it using our own sliced Wiltshire ham. A breakfast of champions!
