Egg-stremely Easy Ham Egg Cups

Egg cups


Now if you can’t make this successfully after following these simple directions, I just don’t know about your cooking fate.  It may be time to hang up your apron and call it quits.  This is a super simple, near effortless, way to have a quick breakfast (and leftovers), a protein-rich snack or side to your breakfast or brunch.  It’s Paleo approved too, if you’re into that.  Enjoy!


  • Your favorite thinly sliced ham slices from the deli 
  • Large eggs
  • Salt, sea salt worked well for me. 
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Paprika (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. (Directions are for 1 egg cup, multiply by how many you desire……)
  3. Spray a nonstick spray into your muffin tin (do not use muffin paper liners!)
  4. Place one piece of ham into each muffin hole, as illustrated above.  
  5. Crack one egg on top of the piece of ham – if you prefer scrambled eggs inside, lightly beat egg in a glass before dumping into ham cup.  
  6. Season with some salt and freshly ground pepper.  Add a small amount of paprika, if desired.  
  7. Cook 10-14 minutes depending on the doneness you desire.  I wanted it completely cooked solid as I don’t like runny eggs!
  8. Cool slightly and enjoy!
