Baked Egg Recipes: Easy Egg Cups

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t have a lot of time in the morning to make a complicated breakfast. Luckily, there are plenty of easy breakfast recipes that can be made in under 10 minutes. One of my favorite breakfast ideas is egg cups. You can make them with bacon and eggs in the oven, or you can try this idea which uses ham and cheese. Whichever recipe you choose, you’re going to love it!

What are egg cups?

Egg cups are a type of breakfast dish that is made by baking eggs in a muffin tin. We can make them with various ingredients, but the most common include bacon, eggs, and cheese. Egg cups are a convenient breakfast option because they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to a week. Plus, they’re easy to customize with your favorite flavors.

This recipe streamlines your morning since you can make them in advance and save them for use throughout the week. To get started, you will need black forest ham, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, eggs, spinach, salt, pepper and paprika.

When you’re ready to bake, simply preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place ham, then cheese, and spinach, and then crack the egg into each muffin/cupcake pan slot.

Top with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Bake for 11 minutes for soft-boiled eggs.

If you need more breakfast ideas, I have several recipes. You can also try a Whole30 version of baked eggs which is just bacon and eggs. YUM!
