Ham and Eggs Cups

Ham and Eggs Cups are the perfect portable breakfast!  Easy baked ham cups filled with sharp cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs.

Ham and Egg Cups

A few weeks ago, I included these handy ham and egg cups as a breakfast idea in one of the weekly meal plans posts.

It reminded me how long it has been since we’ve had them for breakfast around here!  With that, I decided to re-shoot them and give another share to you guys.

These little cups are awesome!

Here is a breakdown:

  • Start with a slice of deli-style ham. Any type will work fine. Regular, honey, or whatever you wish. Be sure to spray your muffin pan first, then, line the bottom of the pan with a slice of ham.
  • In a skillet, scramble the eggs to your desired consistency. If you don’t want to scramble your eggs, you can carefully crack an egg right into the ham cup instead. However, your cooking time will be a bit longer by a few minutes.
  • Top eggs with shredded cheese and black pepper. Usually, I top these with a sharp cheddar, but, mozzarella, Swiss or taco blend also taste great too.

These Ham and Eggs Cups can be made to your preference ( consistency of eggs, cheese, etc) and are great to make, then, toss in the freezer. When you are ready for them, just heat in the microwave for a few seconds and they are ready to go.

Easy peasy 🙌

If I wished to put the eggs in the ham cup raw and bake them until done how much time would you recommend adding to the cook time?

Wondering if you used a traditional 12 c muffin pan or if you used a larger cup size pan?

Looking for Keto fun recipes. This is an interesting one & I’ll try it. But why list the carbs in mg units & not grams? Instead of 243 mg it is .243 grams of carbs. Right?
