Ham and Eggs Cups Recipe

This recipe is inspired by a paleo friendly recipe I discovered at Oh Snap! Let’s Eat! Tina’s original recipe calls for only three ingredients. Here’s my four-ingredient version.


  • 12 slices of Boar’s Head parmesan-pesto ham, sliced thin.
  • Shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
  • 12 eggs
  • Scallions


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Make ham cups by folding ham and rolling to fit in tins. We chose the Boars Head parmesan-pesto ham because of its flavor which pairs well with eggs and cheese. Use whatever ham (or turkey ham like Tina did in the original recipe) you like.

6. Sprinkle scallions over top.

7. Bake 15 minutes for hard cooked eggs with glossy, set center. If you prefer hard cooked eggs, add an extra minute or two. For gooey egg centers, decrease cooking time (safe cooking practices require an internal cooking temperature of at least 160 degrees).

Store leftovers up to three days in refrigerator. My hubby says they taste even better cold.
