A possible explanation is that meat is more significant than eggs, hence ham and eggs, that it was the exceptional that was fronted. However, the jam of toast and jam seems to be more of a treat than the toast. Some of these examples may simply be fixed. Bacon and eggs could be deconstructed into post and pre-animate leaving room for a chicken in the middle, finally giving us an answer to the old question, "Which came first..." I hear the groans.
