The ingredients are really up to you and your family’s liking. Suggestions include onions, broccoli, peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and so on. Just chop them small enough so they are included within each bite of the cup. They’re assembled just like our Mini Tortilla Breakfast Cup recipe.

They’re great packed up for lunches or breakfast on the go! They can be baked ahead of time and kept in the fridge for easy reheating with a quick warmup in the microwave. They’re also naturally gluten- and grain-free.

  1. Coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray, and preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line each muffin tin cavity with a slice of ham, creating a cup. If your slices are larger in diameter, you can cut them in half and fold them inside to create the cup shape.

  4. Add the cheese and toppings (if using).
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and the cheese is melted.
