Mini Ham and Egg Cups

If you are the type that doesn't "do" recipes just consider using some of these ingredients...

Eggs, shredded low-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded Parmesan cheese, cottage cheese, frozen spinach, defrosted, water squeezed out and roughly chopped, roasted red peppers, diced, finely diced ham, canadian bacon, crumbled bacon, sliced green onions, kosher salt, black pepper, hot sauce, slices ham as cups

Preheat oven to 350

In a bowl, combine all ingredients (except ham slices) and stir well.
If using ham slices, spray muffin tin with non cook spray and place one piece of ham in each well to form a bowl.
Evenly divide egg mixture between the 12 muffin wells (about 1/4 C each), being careful to keep ingredients well dispersed. You want them to fill right up to the top.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Bake them until they puff up nicely and are just barely set on top. Overcooked eggs are spongy and gross, so don't go crazy and let them cook too long. Eggs will sink after cooling.

As soon as they're cool enough to handle, pop them out of the tin and eat! Or you can let cool completely to room temp and freeze and just reheat one at a time in the microwave. Store leftovers in the fridge.
Store them in an airtight container in the fridge, or freeze them. When reheating in the microwave, make sure to take off the foil liner! And if you're reheating from frozen, I try to take them out the night before so they can thaw in the fridge. Then when you microwave them, set them on a folded paper towel to drain excess moisture.
Eat them alone, or for a well-rounded breakfast crumble on top of a piece of whole grain toast along with a glass of milk and a piece of fruit. Makes 12.
