tip: you can make your own fries from potatoes for this recipe, or use ready-made fries for a simpler version.
Heat the frying oil to 180 degrees celsius or 350 fahrenheit. You can also cook the fries in an air fryer. Fry the fries until nice and crispy and golden brown, then let them drain in a bowl lined with kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
Tear the ham slices into pieces.
Heat a dash of olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the eggs for a few minutes. Make sure that the yolks are still runny, but the whites are set.
Sprinkle the fries with salt and scatter the pieces of ham over them (2 slices per plate). Finish with 2 fried eggs per plate and season each egg with a little salt. Do not use too much salt because the ham is quite salty in taste. Enjoy your dinner!
