Baked Egg Cups

A fun breakfast idea.

Ingredients:

  • Whole egg (1 per cup)
  • Thin sliced ham or cooked bacon
  • Cheese (I used old cheddar)
  • Chipotle hot sauce

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Put two slices of ham into personal ramekins in a “cup” shape (ie line the cup with ham). If using bacon, either shape the bacon to the cup if it’s not too cripsy; otherwise break the bacon up and line the ramekin
  3. Crack one whole egg into the ramekin on top of the ham.
  4. Add a couple of dashes of chipotle hot sauce on top of the egg.
  5. (Note that there is no added salt in this recipe – if you’re using ham or bacon, there is already a lot of salt in this dish, and the egg doesn’t need additional seasoning) (well, maybe a little pepper)
  6. Add a few slices of cheese on top of the egg, just to cover the top of the egg.
  7. Bake the ramekins for 16-18 minutes. The goal here is to have the egg white set while the yolk is still a bit running.
  8. Remove from the oven, and eat.
