Baked Eggs in Ham Cups

I was going to slime out of posting today and do a Wordless Wednesday with this yummy photo of our breakfast from a couple of Sundays ago. However, I knew if I did that you’d all want to know how I made these eggs and I’d wind up having to tell you all individually in emails so I’m making the time for a proper, albeit short, post on these baked eggs in ham cups.

All I did was spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and then put a piece of deli ham into each muffin cup. You have to sort of “pleat” the ham to make it fit. Once the ham is in there just crack an egg into each ham shell and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 400° for about 12 minutes. That amount of time will give you a completely cooked white and a runny yolk, cook longer if you want your yolk to be less runny. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with grated cheese and chopped scallions. Eat.

These were really good and so easy to make. It would be a great way to serve eggs to a large group – you just needs lots of muffin tins!

Let me know if you try it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

    Oh! Those look divine! Thanks for the words . . . I think I’ll give ’em a try. (Although I know some Tabasco will be involved.)

    Mmmm I tried something similar and did baked eggs in halved avocados. Put an egg in pretty much anything and it’s delish!

    This would be good with prosciutto, too! I’m going to give it a try. I can have a 12 minute egg and Smith can have a 20 minute egg. :)

    I’d love to try these vegetarian style, but I have yet to find a vegetarian deli “meat” that didn’t scare the bejeesus out of me. Maybe a tortilla instead, though none of mine have ever been flexible enough to not tear.

    Om nom nom… Must try these. I saw a recipe recently for a hash brown casserole where you baked eggs in holes made in the hash browns. That looked good, too.

    What a great idea for an easy but very appetizing idea for a brunch entree. Did you make this up? Thanks for sharing!

    Yummy! I’m going to try these for sure. I’m going to have a small brunch the day after my son gets married, in just a few weeks! Thanks for the great idea–didn’t know what I was going to do that would be easy and special. Add a fruit bow and some wonderful muffins from the bakery, and there is my meal!
    You are always an inspiration.

    What a great simple recipe. I am not a fan of eggs, but I do a brunch on Easter Sunday that this would work great for. Thanks for the idea!

    Looks yum. I’ve never been able to manage to get baked eggs to come out with the whites cooked and the yolks runny. They’re either all hard, or the whites aren’t set.

    that’s brilliant! my husband is an egg and meat for breakfast kind of man, and i’m always looking for ways to change it up a bit. sounds easy and tasty!

    Must try. We’ve been doing ramkins with eggs and sausage at my house. This looks like a much easier idea, plus I don’t have to find 4 ramkins not currently in use for other tasks around the house or clean egg residue from them after. Too bad I didn’t by sliced ham at the store today. My insight seems to be struggling with the continued snow here. That or the current lack of flowers from the ground. (It’s March. Fields should be covered in flowers- wild and bulbs.)

    Yum. I’ve done something similar with a little proscuitto and some veggies (peas, asparagus, whatever I had) and in individual ramekins — I have some great Pampered Chef cups with lids — and that way I had some ready for another breakfast, or a quick grab for lunch if I was running late. Delicious!!
