Another spin on the classic Spanish “jamon and eggs”. I like to use a griddle pan (or better still a bbq) and grill the meaty king oyster or porcini mushrooms for an almost meat like quality.
The grilled lettuce is a nice addition here- its widely over looked that the more robust and sturdy lettuces can be cooked and the results are lovely. A selection of bitter leaves and sweet gem lettuce makes a delicious mix.
