Ham and Egg Cups Recipe

These Baked Eggs in Ham Cups were not supposed to be here today !! But it is soooo good that I couldn’t help myself and I posted it. Yes, I try to follow a schedule, but when the recipe is really delicious it deserves “cut the line”. Also, it is pretty easy to prepare, it is healthy and the egg flavor works perfectly with ham. Of course I don’t need to mention that it is beautiful. Don’t you think it looks like a fancy dish?

My husband said this is the best food I ever prepared (can you believe it? I think he is exaggerating).

Serve 6
(First I prepared 4 ham cups, but my husband loved it so much that I had to arrange 2 extras .. yes, it is that good).

Bake the cups in a preheated oven at 350º for 15 minutes. Scoop them out carefully.

I know Americans will have this dish for breakfast, but I had it for dinner… hahahaha. Yes, in Brazil it can be totally a dinner option. But I do agree that it is also great as breakfast/brunch.
