Eating My Way Through the Holidays! What’s cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Home for the Holidays: Festive Ham Egg Cups! While everyone is still sleeping and the coffee is brewing, these tasty little breakfast cups can be assembled in minutes. By the time the aromas wafting from the kitchen arouse the senses, it will appear as though you’ve been baking for hours. Not so! Good morning. I’m so glad you could join me for breakfast!
FESTIVE HAM EGG CUPS
Nonstick Cooking Spray
6 slices Smoked Virginia Ham
6 large eggs
6 teaspoons Gouda cheese, shredded
1 green onion
Seasoned salt and cracked pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chia seeds, optional
Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly coat six muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Place one slice of ham into each cup forming a bowl. Layer one teaspoon of cheese on top of ham. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Divide the green onion by slicing it between all six cups. This is easily done with a kitchen shears. Next crack one egg into each cup, being careful not to break the yolk. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and broil on High for one minute. The whites should be cooked, but the yolks a little runny. Watch! Remove egg cups onto serving platter and sprinkle chia seeds on top before serving. Enjoy!
*TIP: Make ahead and gently reheat in the microwave on 20% power for those mornings-on-the-run.
