Ham and egg cups

Family Circle

Makes: 8 servings

  • 8  slices sugar-cured deli ham
  • 4 tablespoons (1 ounce) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 8 muffin cups with cooking spray. Set aside.
Position 1 slice of ham in each of the muffin cups, doubling each slice over to insure that there are no holes in the bottom of the ham “cups.” Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of the cheese and about 1/2 tablespoon scallions in the bottom of each cup.
Place one raw egg in each ham cup. Sprinkle each egg lightly with pepper. Bake about 15 minutes or to desired degree of doneness. Carefully remove the egg cups using the ham to lift onto serving plates.
*Chef’s note: Aren’t these just adorable?! They’re adorable. And so simple. Few ingredients, not much time, win. I cooked mine a bit longer to ensure the yolks were completely set.
