During the school year, I am really bad about eating breakfast.
In fact, I don't eat breakfast during until about 10am & I usually just have a Luna bar or Kind bar in between classes.
So, this summer, I am making a conscious effort to eat a better breakfast, so I've been making batches of my Ham & Egg Muffin Cups.
Here is what you need:
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup of cubed ham
- 1/4 cup of shredded cheese
- 1 cup of chopped veggies
(In this batch, I used red & yellow cherry tomatoes, but the possibilities are endless! You can chop up bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, green onions, etc. For my batch next week, I am adding in shredded zucchini since we have so much from our garden)
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Crack the 8 eggs in a bowl:
Whisk and add your salt & pepper
Chop up 1 cup of veggies.
(Again, I used red & yellow cherry tomatoes, but the possibilities and combinations are endless! You can chop up bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, green onions, zucchini, etc)
For the ham, I use Hormel cubed ham. It comes in a resealable package with 2 cups of cubed ham. Perfect for this recipe (and the cubed ham is perfect for salads!)
Add the chopped veggies, ham & shredded cheese to the eggs. Stir together.
Take a muffin tin and spray generously with a non-stick cooking spray:
Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes:
These will pop right out of the muffin tins!
You can eat them right out of the oven, no need to let them cool!
The inside is nice & fluffy and perfectly cooked:
My favorite way to eat them is with Cholula sauce on top. I love that stuff!
Each batch makes 12 muffin cups!
I store them in an airtight container in my fridge (they store up to 4-5 days) You could also freeze them.
In the mornings, you can wrap them up in a paper towel & heat them up in the microwave for 20 seconds or so.
It's good to start your morning off with protein and these Muffins cups are packed full of protein (and veggies!)
These are also really yummy on a toasted English Muffin...it's like the healthy homemade version of an Egg McMuffin :)

I would love to know what combo of veggies you will use when you make these!
