Easy Ham and Egg Cups are fast and so simple to make. The perfect breakfast or brunch! You can easily serve these eggs with toast to dip in the yolk or you can pick them up and eat them!
Egg Cups with Ham
You can totally control how cooked these egg yolks are. I wait until the edges of the yolk start to turn white and then I know they are done and ready to dip some toast in them.
My husband and son wait until the yolks turn slightly white all over so their yolks are totally cooked. You will have to take yours out when these low carb, high protein, keto friendly breakfast cups are done to your liking!
Also, to be honest, I rarely use salt and pepper when making these eggs. The ham has salt in it and I believe the flavor of the ham blends in to each egg. You can sprinkle some pepper on top before making them or afterwards. The decision is always up to you!

Ingredients in the Best Ham and Egg Cups
- deli ham, sliced
- cooking spray
- green onion
How to make these Easy Ham and Egg Cups
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly coat muffin cups with cooking spray. Fit 1 slice of ham into each muffin cup as best you can. The ham will not fit perfectly and some of your egg may run outside the ham into the cup. This is ok.
Crack 1 egg into each cup.
Bake in middle of your oven until whites are cooked but yolks are as you like, between 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper on each egg before serving if needed. Remove ham and egg cups carefully. Sprinkle with chopped green onions if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
Can you freeze Easy Ham and Egg Cups?
This recipe is PERFECT for busy mornings when you need something healthy and fast. Simply follow the recipe exactly as directed.
Once the ham and egg cups are totally cool, individually wrap each in plastic wrap, place them into an airtight container or resealable freezer bag, with as much air removed as possible.
When ready to serve, remove from your freezer and ideally allow them to defrost on your counter before attempting to reheat. The closer they are to room temperature the better.
How do you Reheat Easy Ham and Egg Cups?
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in your fridge for about 3 days.
Before reheating I try to remove the egg cups from the fridge or freezer, for at least 15 minutes from the fridge or about an hour from the freezer, to get the egg as close to room temperature as possible before reheating.
When you need to reheat you have two options. First, you can preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for between 10 and 14 minutes.
You can also toss one in your microwave oven on a paper towel or microwave safe dish for a minute and then in 15 second intervals until heated through. After heating the second egg you will know the exact timing for your microwave. On mine it is 75 seconds.
We have a video below for you to have a look at if you have a few seconds! This is our shortest video ever but that is how quick these eggs are to make.

- Don’t worry if the ham doesn’t perfectly fit in the muffin tin. Simply fit it in the best you can. The weight of the eggs and filling will help smooth it out, and if some of the egg mixture spills over it is fine.
- You can easily double or triple this recipe.
- Standard thickness of deli ham is ideal for this recipe. You don’t want the ham so thin that it doesn’t hold up to the eggs.
- Cooking spray makes quick work of greasing the muffing pan, and is my preferred method, but you could also use butter, olive oil, or other vegetable oil.
