This has become one of our favourite weekend meals. It meets my criteria: easy to make, easy to clean up and tasty. Even better, it's flexible for the little crowd as you can always add a bit of food colour and voila - green eggs and ham! Add an English Muffin and you've got yourself a breakfast sandwich. I've been making this for my kids since I saw it on CanadaAM late last fall and it is a hit every time!
To make 6 servings:
6 round paper thin slices of deli ham (about 8 oz total)
6 large eggs
2 tbsp whipping cream or 18% cream
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
1/3 cup finely diced Gruyère or Swiss Cheese
- Grease 6 metal muffin cups or 1-cup ovenproof ramekins and line each with 1 slice of ham to create cup.
- Crack egg into each ham cup. Drizzle cream evenly over eggs. Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Place muffin sheet on cookie sheet and place in 400*F oven until whites are just set but yolks are still a bit runny. This takes about 12 to 15 minutes depending on your oven.
- Serve and enjoy.
Oh, you might want to run a knife along the edges to loosen the ham. Then serve and enjoy!
Make sure you have on the table: ketchup, hot sauce, sliced tomatoes and extra Gruyère. Serve with English muffins, bagels and steaming hot coffee.
