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

    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 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

    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

    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

    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

  • I use egg white substitute, leave out the ham and just use veggies like bell pepper and tomato and low fat shredded cheese. Put the veg and cheese in first then pour egg sub in over top and bake! Much healthier and so good! - 1/7/13

  • Love this idea but I did a recipe makeover that brought it down to only 63 cals. 2.1 g fat and only 14 Mg of cholesterol :) it tasted brest. Even my dad who has been eating eggs and bacon every morning for his whole life loved it. - 9/28/12

  • This was amazing! I made these last minute last night when i noticed I had some leftover hamsteak. I used the fresh ham, a little crumbled bacon and cheese and I also used red's hot sauce instead of tabasco!! Low calorie and easy to reheat the next day! These are a definite repeat!!! - 5/31/12

  • This is SOOO good. I love the fluffiness of them. I replaced tobasco with Franks Red Hot. This is great breakfast on the go. Interested on how they taste after being frozen and reheated again. If still good - perfect for my work week. - 3/10/12

  • I figured the WW Points for this recipe to be 2 Points Plus per muffin. Not bad since I get 5 PP for breakfast. I can still have a piece of toast and my morning milk for a completely filling breakfast. I'm looking forward to trying them and once I do, I will rate. - 4/18/11
