Ham and Egg Baskets

This is the easiest, tastiest little breakfast you could put together, and it really makes a fun presentation. If you are doing brunch for someone special, do give it a try. 

It is so simple.

Just two ingredients and 15 or 20 minutes, and you have a lovely, nutritious and filling little meal that can be breakfast, lunch or dinner... or even a snack!  Make extra and pop them into the fridge to have on hand for a quick bite on the go.

I recently made up 4 of these little baskets for The Captain and I to share for breakfast and he loved them.

Place the muffin cups on a cookie sheet and then put them into the oven.  You can see there was a bit of spill with a couple of the egg whites.

Are you a ham & eggs fan? 
What is your favorite way to cook eggs?


  1. Ah! I love eggs and EVERYONE has been posting yolk porn today. Can't wait to get back home and make a dozen runny eggs. ;)

  2. I love eggs! These look fabulous!


  4. MMM those look GRRRRR-ATE! LOL, Tony the Tiger would be JEALOUS! Ah ha ha!!!

  5. These look great and they are cute too! I pinned this for later! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Made these baskets of sunshine for breakfast this morning!
    When DH starts his comments of with 'next know you have a hit on your hands!!

    I baked them in the convection oven, and Dh was referring to a tough skin that formed on the top of the eggs. I think it may have been from the circulating air that made it tough so next time I will try with just the regular oven. Of course it could have been that I overcooked them...and by that I mean I cooked them to my liking -> no runny yolks.

    Thanks for sharing, I always look forward to trying your creations

    1. Thanks so much! I love that you call them baskets of SUNSHINE! I agree.. that IS what they look like. And I am so happy your husband likes them too... I do like my eggs a bit runny.

  7. Stopping by from Pin It Party. Thanks for your comment on my blog! I totally forgot about these ham cups...I used to make them as a kid. I'll do now with my kids!
