Cheesy Ham and Egg Baskets Recipe
All of your breakfast favorites are in this fun Cheesy Ham and Egg Baskets Recipe! It’s so easy to make and fun for kids too, just add everything in layers and let these breakfast cups bake in the oven.
Start with preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and butter or coat your muffin tins with a non-stick cooking spray. Gather the basic ingredients: ham slices, grated cheese, and eggs, as well as any desired seasoning (optional – salt and pepper, paprika, and parsley are pictured here).
Use your favorite cheese and stuff some down inside a ‘basket’ made out of a ham slice (you may have to fold it a bit) and placed into a muffin tin. Place one whole egg on top of each basket of ham and cheese and add seasoning on top. Bake your cheesy ham and egg baskets for about 30 minutes for eggs that are fully cooked. They won’t ‘jiggle’ any more but will still have a nice, soft yolk.
Use a butter knife to pop the baskets out of the muffin tin after allowing them to cool for about 5 minutes. Next, enjoy having finger food for breakfast!
