This recipe for Ham and Cheese Egg Cups is a staple in my house!

They are so easy, delicious and only require a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your refrigerator!

Ham and Cheese Egg cups are the perfect breakfast if you are trying to cut carbs or go keto! They are made with only a few ingedients including deli ham, cheddar cheese and egg and baked in the oven for easy and delicious breakfast!

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, but also one of my most easily skipped meals. Mornings are typically very hectic in my house with two young kids trying to get them fed, dressed, teeth brushed, lunches packed for school, etc and it just seems that before I know it, it’s lunch time and I haven’t fed myself yet. But these egg cups are perfect way to make sure I eat a healthy breakfast and start my day off right! I usually make a whole pan, keep leftovers in the fridge and just microwave 2 for easy meal.

These egg cups are not only delicious but also low in carbs! I first made this recipe back in April when I was doing keto (ish) in preparations for a beach vacation. Pretty much the only time I put down the cookie and cut my carbs is when I’ll be going to the beach. But this recipe is a keeper and although I’m not doing keto anymore, I’ve continued to make it on a regular basis ever since! Not only do I love it, but my kids and husband also enjoy it so it’s a win-win all around!

How to make Ham and Cheese Egg Cups

Preheat your oven to 400F. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. In each cup place one slice of deli ham, a sprinkle of cheddar and one cracked egg. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. I bake mine for right about 12 minutes because I like my yolk a little runny.

    And why have I never thought to do this before! I’d love to do this as a little appetiser for a brunch party although I doubt it would last very long! Love creative ways to cook up food we know so well. Yum!

    • Hi Debra! Thanks they are perfect for a quick and easy make ahead breakfast too! I like to make a whole pan and just microwave 2 at a time for breakfast on the go.

      These were so good! If we have a bit of leftover orange pepper, spinach, etc., we dice that and put a couple of pinches in. So versatile! Breakfast for dinner when I don’t feel like making a big meal results in eggie cups.
