Baked Eggs in Ham Crisps

Baked Eggs in Ham Crisps
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day - along with lunch and dinner.

An ideal morning meal for me is two eggs over easy with toast, orange juice and coffee. It is simple to make and filling enough so I am not hungry within an hour. Even though I love this breakfast, the inquisitive cook in me is always on the lookout for a new preparation for an old favorite.

I have come across many recipes for baked eggs, and a recent lazy Sunday morning was the perfect time to try my hand at this easy recipe for Baked Eggs in Ham Crisps. With only 2 ingredients, a muffin tin, and a can of cooking spray, my breakfast was in the oven in less than a minute. A cooking time of about 13 - 14 minutes gave me enough time to brew a pot of coffee, pour a glass of juice and toast 2 slices of bread.

Sliding the just cooked eggs which were cradled in ham out of the muffin tin, I decided that I may have a new go-to breakfast. The slightly browned ham is perhaps the perfect accompaniment to the slightly runny egg. Toast completes the meal.

I'll be having Baked Eggs in Ham Crisps at least once or twice in the next week. That is until I find a new recipe to replace it.

Great recipe! Something the kids would definitely enjoy because it's so adorable! What do you think of Creamy Egg Cups with Kale and Parmesan? It was my most recent discovery! http://www.recipe4living.com/recipes/creamy_egg_cups_with_kale_and_parmesan.htm

I think yours is my new fave though, and I will try it this Saturday! Thanks for sharing!
