Baked Eggs in Ham Cups

AvatarPosted by

I can not get enough of these simple, easy, and paleo breakfasts (think 2-ingredient pancakes)!  This Baked Eggs in Ham Cups recipe is perfect and you can really go as creative as you like with your ingredients.  I made two different styles of it:  Scrambled and Non-scrambled.

Here I have the most simple way to make it.  Basically, the ingredients you really need.  But as I mentioned, you can add whatever you like in your baked eggs in ham cups and it is easy and delish. Depending on the ingredients you add, this breakfast can be paleo, gluten free, or keto!

Some ideas:

  • Mushrooms
  • Green Peppers
  • Cheese (if you eat dairy)
  • Onions
  • Bacon bits
  • Spinach
  • Whatever you are craving!

If you are adding other ingredients, opt for the scrambled style. Otherwise, you’re really not going to have your yummy ingredients mix well with the ‘whole’ egg.

Also, keep in mind that you may have some left over eggs if your eggs are too big for one muffin. I usually just put that aside and save for later. I wrote this post for left over egg yolk ideas, but really you can also apply a lot of the ideas for any type of left over eggs! Post here.

Baked Eggs in Ham Cups

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of Ham
  • 2 Eggs
  • Green onions

Instructions

0.  Preheat your oven to 400°F.

1.  Grease up your Muffin/Cupcake Pan.  You can either spray it down with some cooking spray, or you can do what I did which was smear some Coconut Oil all over it.

2.  Fit 1 or 2 slices of ham in to each muffin cup.  I used two because my ham was sliced real thin.

3.  (Optional)  Depending on if you want your eggs all scrambled or not, you can crack an egg in to a separate cup and beat it before dumping it in to the ham cups.  If you do decide on doing this, you can also mix in your other ingredients (think chopped mushrooms/scallions/spinach).

4.  If you like your eggs whole, go ahead and crack that egg in to the cup!

5.  (Optional)  Throw a few pieces of your chopped up scallions on top for garnish!

6.  Pop that muffin pan in to the oven which you previously preheated  400°F and bake for 15 minutes or however well you like your eggs.  When I went with 15 minutes, my scrambled egg version was more well done than my non-scrambled one, so you might want to keep that in mind.

Look how beautiful they are!

  1. I’m making a version of this myself for dinner tonight. Since we’re more no/low Carb than paleo I added cottage and Cheddar cheese when I beat the eggs. I also added spinach since I’m a little obsessive about having a green veggie for dinner.

  2. Great quick and easy tried this morning. Tried both the scrambled and whole egg, scrambled work a little better and increased my cook time to 19 min. But ovens vary in heating so no big deal. Loved it will definitely have again.

  3. I made the baked eggs in ham/ turkey cups for my family for thanksgiving breakfast and we all loved them. They are super easy to make. Great recipe!

  4. Do these freeze and then reheat well? I’d love to make a big batch for quick breakfasts, but I don’t know what freezes well and what doesn’t, and then whether or not they would taste good reheated after being frozen. Any thoughts on that? Thanks!

  5. The recipe looks amazing and a great way to meal prep for the week. I am curious about your nutrition information, an egg is about 70 cal and 7g protein. However you have listed 40 cal and 4 g protein. This is far from a deterrent for making this (ham has been added to the grocery list).

    1. Thanks for doing the math! I’m not going to lie, I used this software to do it for me without checking it myself (I don’t usually count calories and such) and thought I was just helping people out by providing the info. BUT I will take your word for it that it’s not accurate and just remove it! Thanks again!
