Ham & Egg Cups

Last Sunday morning, I had the family in for brunch...and served one of our favorite quick and easy egg recipes. To this point...it's never been written down on paper...but here it is for you to try. All you need is a muffin tin...ham and eggs...and a wee bit of grated cheese along with your herbs of choice.

Ham and Egg Cups

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices of deli ham
  • 12 eggs
  • grated cheese
  • seasoning
  • chopped basil

Directions:


  1. Spray muffin tins with Pam.

  2. Line each cup with a slice of deli ham (I asked that they not be sliced too thin...and had rather hefty slices this time).

  3. Break an egg gently into each ham cup. Season with salt and pepper...sprinkle with chopped basil (or chives or your herb of choice).

  4. Bake at 350' F for about 15 minutes.

  5. Remove from oven...and top each egg with grated cheese (cheddar or parmesan)...and bake for 5 minutes longer.

  6. Remove from pan and serve immediately.

Serve with toast...or crescent rolls...add a hash-brown casserole and a fruit salad...and call it brunch.

This Sunday I am far away from my kitchen...and enjoying someone else's cooking!
