Baked Ham & Egg Cuplet

by Lauren

These just might be the cutest little breakfast cuplets ever. Not to mention how tasty they are. My dad probably would have eaten 5 or 6 if I had made enough of them.

Adorable, right? And so simple. My friend Carolina sent me a link to this recipe from Yumsugar and I have literally been thinking about them all week.

You can make these in little ramekins or a muffin tin. I’ve been using ramekins a lot lately…why is everything in a ramekin so adorable? I love mini foods.

Cheese and green onion were the only toppings my mom had on hand. Next time, I want to add a layer of sautéed mushrooms and maybe a little wilted spinach. They shall be called omelet cuplets. Let me know if you test it out!

INGREDIENTS

1 egg

1 thin slices of deli ham (preferably round- I only had rectangles on hand)

sprinkle of cheese

sprinkle of diced scallions

Salt and Pepper

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400.  Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.  Lay a piece of ham in the ramekin of muffin tin.  Crack one egg into the hole and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake the egg for 12-14 minutes, cover with foil if the ham begins to burn on the edges- although I found the crispy part to be particularly tasty. Remove the egg and top with grated cheese and scallions.  Add a layer of sautéed mushrooms and/or spinach for an extra little zest.
