The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Ham and Egg Cups (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy-to-print recipe card):

Eggs – you will need 10 large eggs for this recipe.
Salt & Pepper
Green onions – this ingredient is optional and we did not use it in our muffins, but it can add a nice hint of flavor and color if you like.
Ham – we use deli ham, but any thinly sliced ham you like will work well. Thicker slices of ham do not bend and form well to the muffin cups, so thin sliced is essential.
Shredded cheddar cheese – you can also experiment with other types of cheese in this recipe, but cheddar is always a good option.
