Hello, friends, it’s been a while, right? So sorry for the absence. Though it may not seem, we have been busy as bees creating new delicious recipes that we are excited to share in the upcoming days! 

Starting with an Easter Special – delicious Baked Ham and Eggs Cups that are so easy to make, you ‘ll be making them all. the. time (and not just for Easter)!

Baked Ham and Eggs Cups

We’ve been super into meal-prep lately, as we both like our meals home-made and do not like to eat out on a daily basis. This has led to many meals, that can be made ahead, stored in the fridge, frozen and generally made in bulk.

We usually meal-prep for only up to 2 days ahead and are especially fond of ingredient prepping, as opposed to whole meals. When you have a couple of ingredients ready in the fridge, it is just so much easier to create a meal from scratch in minutes.

We’ve been thinking about sharing the tips & tricks we learned along the way in an upcoming post! Good thing we’ll be soon having holidays and a couple of days off 🙂

Why make Baked Ham and Eggs Cups?

These baked cups are a great meal-prep breakfast option, that you make in literally 15 minutes – just throw ingredients in a muffin tin and place into the oven for about 12-15 minutes (depending on how well you like your egg cooked), and you’re done! These baked egg cups will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, so they are always available for a quick low-carb and gluten-free snack.

What can I use instead of cooked ham?

We understand you may not have this specific brand of ham available in your country. Though this recipe was made using the cooked ham, you are free to use other meats! Try cooked ham, baked ham, or even bacon, as long as you use large slices, that you can shape into cups to hold your egg in.
