Simple. This one is the definition of simple. But if you like eggs, you will be enchanted. Sometimes, when you cook an egg and it is truly perfect, it is actually creamy. This egg was creamy. A little dusting of salt and pepper were the only seasonings that I used and there is nothing I would add to that technique. And, who thought an egg dish could be pretty? Not I. But the ham produces this slightly singed ruffled edge that is quite lovely.
This is also something you should try if you find yourself needing to cook eggs for a group and are tired of making scrambled eggs for groups in the mornings. All you need are: deli ham sliced very thinly, eggs, salt and pepper. You will need two slices of ham for every egg you intend to prepare.
|Ruffled Egg Cups|| |
- 12 slices deli ham
- 6 eggs
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a muffin tin, take two very thin slices of ham and press the slices into a muffin hole so it forms a bowl. Repeat this for as many servings as you want to prepare. Crack one egg into each ham cup.
- Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. The tops will still be shiny and a touch jiggley when you pull out the tray. Allow the eggs to rest for a few moments and then sprinkle on salt and pepper. Remove the ham cups from the tin carefully using your hands or a spoon.
That is all there is to it.Enjoy!
