Breakfast Ham and Egg Cups Recipe

I’ve mentioned before that this holiday season I’m trying out some new breakfast recipes to keep people out of my hair in the kitchen when I’m making the big meals. I’m hoping that if I can get the big meals made more easily, I’ll have more time to enjoy my guests. That is really what this time of year is all about, right?

Sam’s Club has been instrumental for me in this new plan. Sam’s is obviously one of the easiest places to shop if you’re expecting a crowd or need some special items or gifts. But it’s also great because it carries NatureRaised Farms® Ham (did you see my NatureRaised Bacon recipe a few weeks ago?). NatureRaised Farms® Ham is easily found in the deli cooler at Sam’s Club, too.

That’s right, I’m using lunch meat for this breakfast cup recipe. And it’s delicious and SO EASY.

Here’s the recipe:

Breakfast Ham and Egg Cups Recipe

Breakfast Ham and Egg Cups Recipe

Yield: 8 breakfast cups

Ingredients:

  • slices NatureRaised Farms® Ham
  • 4 tbsp + 1 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray 8 muffin cups with cooking spray. 
  2. Place 1 slice of ham into each muffin cup. Sprinkle 1/2 tbsp of cheese and around 1/2 tbsp green onions into each cup.
  3. Crack one raw egg into each ham "cup." Sprinkle a bit of pepper onto each cup.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are done to your liking. Enjoy!

One of the great parts about this recipe is that I can use the ham for lunches as well, so it makes meal planning simple.
