We tried these Ham and Egg Cups this morning and they were a BIG hit! You could even double the recipe and freeze some for an easy breakfast on busy days.
Ham and Egg Cups
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons salsa
1 cup Mexican shredded cheese
1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup finely diced ham or bacon
1/4 cup finely diced green onions
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12 slices deli ham
Combine first three ingredients and stir until well combined. Stir in remaining ingredients. Grease or spray muffin tin cups and add ham slices.
Carefully spoon egg mixture into each cup making sure that it doesn’t over flow the edges of the ham. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until eggs are set and slightly brown on top. Serve immediately.
Yield: 12 Ham and Egg Cups
(Thanks to Our Best Bites for the idea!)

So glad to help Jamie! If you will send me an email through my contact form on ThePeacefulMom.com I will be happy to send you my 1 Week of Breakfasts in 1 Hour GF Freezer Cooking Plan. 🙂
So do you think you could freeze them?
I haven’t tried it, but they would probably be okay.
I’ve made something similar (without salsa; that’s what happens when you marry a non-Texas 🙁 ) but buzzed the egg / spinach / etc stuff up in the blender until it was all green, and called it “green eggs and ham” for my little Dr. Seuss fan 🙂
That sounds fun!

Hi Kimberlee! I love reading your newsletters, your ideas & menus. What I’m astonished at is that you can feed your family on such little food. We are big eaters, because take the Ham & Egg Cups for instance, my teen son would eat about 8 of them & my 11 y/o would probably eat about 6 of them, with toast & a banana! LOL! You only made 1 muffin tin to feed 6 people? So that’s basically 2 each? That wouldn’t fly at our house! 😉 I have to ask, is there more if anyone wanted seconds?
BTW, Happy New Year to you & your family! I have a son with Autism too, so we have that in common.
Actually, my husband rarely eats breakfast and I usually make fried eggs for myself, so the kids eat 3 or 4 each. If they are still hungry they can have toast and fruit with it. Of course you should do what works for your family, so you may want to make two muffin tins. 🙂
Ooh, we loved these! Although, I substituted turkey for the ham because my husband isn’t too fond of ham. I made them for our breakfast-for-dinner night, and I am almost ashamed to say we (My husband, myself, and our 20 month old) ate all 12 even though I served it with pancakes as well! No leftovers for breakfast this time! I will have to double it next time so we can use the leftovers on English muffins for breakfast!
We didn’t have any leftovers either. 🙂
I am really into trying new recipes lately – this one sounds tasty, easy, and inexpensive! Thanks for sharing.

AWESOME!! Thanks for such a fantastic recipe…my 3 year old ate 2!!! I love your website and thought process….God Bless:)
That’s great Brittany! I didn’t think of it as a toddler friendly recipe. 🙂
I have made something similar before but just kinda forgot about them. I didn’t have salsa so I did different flavors but kept with the same structure. I used a full slice of hormel (preservative free) ham… the slices are kinda small and I used my large muffin tin. Then for the egg mixture, I used some leftover Mediterranean feta, frozen chopped spinach (I didn’t even thaw it, i just put it on the bottom over the ham), and I had some diced tomatoes that we going to go bad soon. They turned out AMAZING! I had to cook it a bit longer. I think it’s because the spinach was frozen and the tomatoes added more liquid. It just goes to show that you can use whatever you have on hand. The best part is that since the ham covered the muffin cups, I didn’t have to do as much scrubbing on the tins. 🙂 Thank you!
I LOVE not having to clean the muffin tins-LOL!
I have seen this kind of recipe before but I’ve never tried it. I really like the idea, though, and yours look very tasty. Thanks for participating in Gluten-Free Wednesdays. Please remember to link to the individual post and not your home page. 🙂

These loook great and sound like a fun treat. How much ham do you think it would take to do mini muffins? Maybe a half a piece? What do you think? It would be a great treat for MOPS also.
They were tasty! You could easily use half a piece of ham, maybe less. If you try it, let me know. 🙂
