Ham Egg & Cheese Breakfast Cups


In this post I am sharing how to make easy Ham, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Cups.

This simple breakfast cup recipe is so useful in many ways for many reasons. I love a handy recipe, don’t you?

First, this simple breakfast recipe is great for serving guests and using up some leftover holiday ham. After a big holiday meal, every hostess needs an easy fix breakfast recipe under her belt. 

These breakfast cups or muffins can also be called mini crustless quiche, which would be great for parties. Wanna get a little bit fancier? Call them mini frittatas.

Preheat oven to 350° F

Step 1: Add a little bit of the chopped ham and shredded cheese to each cup of your baking dish.

A standard cupcake pan or muffin tin will work fine. I’m using a Wilton Perfect Muffin Top baking pan (I’ve shared a link to the pan in the recipe card) which has shallow wide cups. I love this pan especially for cooking eggs, like in this recipe, or just adding an egg to each section to bake for breakfast sandwiches. 

Keep in mind, if you’re using a standard muffin pan to adjust cooking times as needed.

Step 2: In a measuring cup add the milk, then the eggs and whisk to combine. Pour the scrambled egg mixture into each section with the other ingredients. Next, season each section with a bit of salt and pepper to suit your taste.

Bake 10-15 minutes, or until set. Mine took about 12 minutes. 

Serve hot.
