Happy Friday everyone!
While I’m away at my very first Haven Conference and vacation the next two weeks, I gathered a few of my sweet blog friends to share some awesome guest posts with you guys! Show them some love and remember that you can follow along with what I’m up to on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter :)
Joining us today is the fun and talented Meaghan of Cook.Craft.Love sharing a delicious (and cute) breakfast recipe!!! Meaghan is crazy talented and her recipes always make me want to eat my computer screen. Seriously, head over and look at all her amazing creations!
Hi, all! My name is Meaghan and I blog over at Cook. Craft. Love. where I adore sharing simple recipes for the busy family, crazy easy crafts, and fun free printables. I’m so excited to be with you here today sharing a simple baked breakfast that can be made ahead of time for busy mornings.
It can be especially hard to get back into the swing of things when school starts up and you’re struggling with waking up to an alarm clock again. Or, more importantly, waking the kids up to an alarm clock. Sometimes you really need a quick and easy breakfast you can throw together without having to resort to a pre-packaged pastry or sugary cereal.
These baked ham and egg cups come together in just 20 minutes and are a great source of filling protein to get the kids ready for a day of learning and keep them nice and satisfied until lunch. Make these ahead of time on the weekends or pop them in the oven while the coffee is brewing for a quick and delicious breakfast.
These would also be a perfect addition to your next Sunday brunch! Customize the eggs however you want with your favorite omelette fixings. I used potatoes and cheese in these but some other options for you to try could be salsa, bacon, green peppers, mushrooms, spinach, or even asparagus. The sky is the limit with these!
These were kid tested and mom approved! Just a few tips for ya. Err on the side of thicker rather than thinner when it comes to your ham slices and be careful not to let it break while you’re pushing it into the muffin tin. Otherwise your egg will seep through and stick to the bottom of the tin. Not fun.
What is your favorite quick and healthy breakfast for busy mornings?
Baked Ham and Egg Cups
These cute little cups are as quick and easy to make as they are pretty, perfect for busy mornings!
- 12 ham slices
- 8 large eggs
- 3 Tbs milk
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- Other omelette add-ins, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and gently push a ham slice into each muffin tin.
- Crack eggs into a medium bowl, add milk, salt, and pepper and beat well.
- Add your favorite omelette ingredients to the bottom of each ham cup and pour in eggs until 3/4 full.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until eggs are just set.
If you're planning on making these ahead of time then decrease the bake time because they'll cook a little more when they're reheated.
Thanks so much to Emily for having me here today! I love to hang out on Pinterest and Facebook so I hope to see y’all there! And I’d be tickled pink for you to check out some of my favorite Cook. Craft. Love. breakfast ideas too:
