Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Cups

Thank you guys so much for all of your sweet comments yesterday! Onward with the next 500! :)

I saw these adorable little ham cups on a Friday night, and I loved how they looked so much that I made them for breakfast the next morning. I love these savory little delights because they look a little bit fancy, but they’re so easy to make and they taste absolutely delicious. You can customize each individual serving to the eater’s liking with no problem. You could use deli turkey slices instead of ham, you could scramble the egg, you could add whatever veggies you like. You could even serve them as an appetizer at a party. No matter how you choose to make them, this method is fail-proof.

I kept ours pretty simple, with just a cracked egg, some cheddar cheese, and a sprinkling of chives. The egg cooked absolutely perfectly; the white was done and the yolk was still slightly runny. For something that took very little time and effort, they certainly were a hit with the husband and toddler...and me, too! These ingredients are staples in our house, so it’s nice to have this quick and cute little breakfast in my arsenal. Make them this weekend!

Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Cups
adapted from Food for a Hungry Soul

2 deli ham slices per cup
1 egg per cup
Salt and pepper to taste

Shredded cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray one muffin cup for each serving with cooking spray. Using two slices of ham for each cup, lay the ham slices criss-crossing each other, ruffling the slices into the muffin cup and up the sides to make it fit.

3. Crack one egg into each muffin cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with cheese.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until white appears cooked. Sprinkle each serving with chives.

These look great! I'm curious to try making them with smoked turkey instead of ham...

I made something similar a couple weekends ago but I used bacon and there was toast involved too. They do look fancy but they're so simple.
