Ham, Egg & Cheese Muffin Cups

Ham, Egg & Cheese Muffin Cups

Introduction

Easy healthy breakfast dish that can be eaten on the go! Easy healthy breakfast dish that can be eaten on the go!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    7 large eggs
    1/4 cup milk
    3/4 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
    1 cup diced red onion
    12 slices shaved brown sugar ham lunchmeat (like Oscar Mayer)
    1 TBSP Olive Oil
    1/8 tsp Garlic powder
    1/2 tsp Tabasco
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 tsp dried parsley

Directions

Makes 12 muffins.

Saute diced onions in Olive Oil until clear, add diced ham to the pan and cook until slightly brown and then set aside to cool.

Set oven to 350 Degrees.

Combine eggs, milk, Tabasco, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add shredded cheese and stir together.

Slowly add the cooled ham mixture to the egg mixture and then spoon into a 12 cup muffin tin. I've used silicone and throw away tin pans, the tin ones needed a spray of non-stick cooking spray (like Pam) the silicone ones didn't need anything.

Place in oven on center rack and cook for about 15 minutes. When done the eggs should bejust barely done on top and slightly dry. They will cook more from the carryover heat when you take them out of the oven. DO NOT OVERCOOK.

Number of Servings: 12

    hubby and I both loved it! Instead of garlic powder I used roasted garlic. I also used muffin papers and the egg got stuck on them so next time will just use the muffin tin and some cooking spray. - 6/1/08

    Made these last night & reheated them for carpool this morning, really liked em. Didn't do the onion or parsley and substituted the Tabasco for Tony's. I did reduced the olive oil as well to half and Pam'ed tin. Result was still kinda greasy but very easy, convenient for a quick healthy breakfast! - 3/5/09

    These are great for busy or lazy mornings. They also freeze well so you can make a tray and have them ready to go when needed. Defrosting and toaster oven time about 15 minutes. - 6/7/08

    I haven't made this yet, but to quote another reviewer "I can't believe they are good for you!" I'm not so sure it is. Ham, 2% cheese and presumably whole milk? The saturated fat alone says to me that this would be OK occasionally, but not for everyday. - 1/24/09

    These were incredible. My only problem is that they were a little too salty. I can't wait to try these again and put in some swiss cheese and mushrooms, some broccoli, or use bacon. Very easy, very tasty!! - 8/15/10

    Perfect portion control! We even added some more chopped veggies and cut out some of the ham and it was just as good! - 6/17/08

    Made a batch for the week. They are so easy to grab, warm-up, and eat. I think I will reduce the onion next time and add some other veggies. I used muffin cups too and they stick to it. Next time I will use a muffin tin. - 8/22/12

    Way too much salt. All the seasonings seemed to float to the top of the eggs. Even after spraying the muffin tins they didn't want to come out of the pan. Made only 9 servings instead of 12. Not a complete disaster, but I won't make them again unless there's a LOT of tweaking. - 6/6/12

    I agree that the salt has to be a typo. I used 1/4 tsp, and it was still a bit salty. To reduce fat, etc., I used 4 eggs, & egg whites & egg substitute. Had about 68 grams of Canadian Bacon that I needed to cook, & used thin sliced oven roasted turkey breast to finish out. Was very good. - 2/1/11

    We'll be eating this for breakfast again! I substituted diced red bell peppers for the onion and a chipotle hot sauce for the tobasco. Still very good! - 7/14/08

    I just didn't like it. The salt measurement may have been a typo, it was way to salty for my taste. I may try to change it a little and try again. - 7/9/08

    I made this recently, and it was okay. I didn't love it, but it is pretty low cal and low carb so it's good for something like the South beach diet. I had it w/ some salsa which was good. I think I'd make this again... - 7/3/08

  • Great recipe! Nice to make and have something fast and easy for breakfast. I did make it over by using only egg whites and using Farmland 95% fat free cubed ham (8 oz). This brought the calories down to 75.1 instead of 88 calories. - 9/9/13
