Does your family have a favorite easy recipe they enjoy for breakfast?
prepping the Ham and Egg Cups in the muffin tin
When prepping the ham and egg cups in the muffin/ cupcake pan, if you’re not using a non-stick muffin tin you should use a cooking spray before placing any ingredients into each slot. Then put a slice of ham in each section in the muffin tin. You could substitute sliced turkey like Hillshire Farm deli meat, for the ham. Next, add the cheese and the spinach.
If you’re not a fan of spinach omit the spinach and use kale. You could even use diced bell peppers.
The last thing you’ll do is crack an egg into each muffin slot. Don’t forget to season your egg cups before placing them into the oven to bake.
You can use salt and pepper if you like. I always sprinkle cracked black pepper and some Louisiana Cajun Seasoning on my egg cups.
Regardless how you season your ham and egg cheese cups, they taste incredible and will become a family favorite breakfast recipe.

Can you freeze the Baked egg cups?
Yes, you can freeze the baked egg cups. Follow the directions on the recipe. Once the egg cups cook, let them cool. Put them into an air-tight container and freeze. Before reheating the egg cups, take them out the freezer and let them get room temperature. Bake the egg cups on a baking rack for a few minutes. You want the egg cups warm all the way through before removing them from the oven.
Tip for cooking the Cheesy Baked Egg Cups
When baking the cheesy baked egg cups, if you want soft-boiled eggs, bake them for 11 minutes. If you would like your eggs hard-boiled, bake them for 15 minutes. Make sure not to overcook the eggs. Usually, I peek at them periodically.
