Add the ham and stir well to distribute evenly.
Pour the eggs into the frying pan. Stir occasionally until they are just beginning to set but are still slightly soft.
Serve immediately with warmed Waitrose Rosemary Focaccia bread, or Pain de Campagne, and a fresh green salad.

NOTES : Piperade is a quick and easy supper dish that originates from the Basque region of France. This recipe is an authentic version of the dish that traditionally contains a Provençale-style mixture of onion, garlic, tomatoes and peppers, mixed with very lightly scrambled eggs.
