Good morning! Rise and shine! I’ve got a great breakfast idea to share with you today. It’s easy and delicious! Ham and Egg Cups are simple to make, yet elegant enough to serve your guests at a brunch or even something like a bridal shower. Just two ingredients! But so cute! Each egg comes in it’s own little cup made of baked ham. What’s better than ham and eggs in the morning!
My husband and son were out of town for the weekend, and it’s been so quiet around here. They weren’t gone long, but I missed my boys. Now that they’re back, I wanted to serve them something extra special for breakfast. Cue the music, “the boys are back in town, the boys are back in town!” Haha…
Anyway, they loved these Ham and Egg Cups!
Making Ham and Egg Cups is so super simple! There are just two ingredients and the name gives it away. LOL! The first ingredient in this recipe is, of course, ham. I chose the Oscar Mayer Selects Natural APPLEWOOD SMOKED HAM because it’s made with no artificial ingredients, and is minimally processed. Selects Natural has no artificial preservatives (the back side of each package lists the ingredients used to preserve quality), no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no gluten and no by-products.
I decided to make six Ham and Egg Cups because my daughter doesn’t eat eggs, so I needed six eggs for this recipe (two eggs per person).
I sprayed a 6-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray, then added two slices of Oscar Mayer Selects Natural APPLEWOOD SMOKED HAM per cup.
Then I cracked one egg into each ham cup.
I baked them in a preheated 400°F oven for 15 minutes.
And voila, they were done! I added a little fresh basil for some color, then served them with salt and pepper to taste.
What could be easier! All you need is toast or biscuits on the side, plus maybe some buttered grits. So good!
Oscar Mayer Selects Natural is the perfect choice for anyone looking for quality cold cuts that have no artificial ingredients and delicious taste.
