Baked Ham and Egg Cups (+Video)

These Low Carb Baked Ham and Egg Cups are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. The ham makes a cup that is stuffed full of eggs and cheese.

A LOW CARB BREAKFAST OR SNACK

Breakfast is the hardest meal to manage everyday in my house. But really, it’s the most important meal. I mean, you just don’t function right on an empty stomach. And your brain isn’t firing on all cylinders either, you know what I mean? So breakfast is the meal that I struggle to get the whole family to eat on busy school and workday mornings.

PROTEIN PACKED BREAKFAST

Generally I can only get my boys to eat scrambled eggs, so this was a great way to change it up and still give them something they enjoy. This was a huge hit!! They really tasted amazing. The eggs bake up so nice and fluffy and the ham gets just a little crispy around the edges. Read my notes below for other add-in flavor ideas!

    So easy to make and delicious! I made batches with add ons also (mushrooms and bacon). Made ahead for Mother’s Day and just microwaved in the morning.

    I know this is an old post, but I just stumbled across it. I just started Keto and was looking for some breakfast ideas. I made these this morning, and oh. my. gosh! They are soooooo good! I made exactly as the recipe stated, and just added some chopped orange pepper. I had to bake about 30 minutes in my convection oven. They are perfect! So flavorful and filling!
