So anyone that knows me knows that I am not a really good cook. I can follow a recipe - but I can't come up with stuff on my own. As such, I'm always on the lookout for recipes that are easy-peasey-rice-and-cheesey.
I found one that I had to share.
Not to worry, I'm not going to turn this into a food blog - there are too many amazing ones out that there that I simply can't compete with (Click here to see my favorite one). But I had to share this one recipe (from Pinterest, course - click here for the source)
They're called Baked Egg Cups.
They're approximately 100 calories each.
They take 12 minutes - with about 2 minutes prep time.
And they're amazing.
Baked Egg Cups
12 Eggs (I usually make them for just my husband and me - so I only make 4 at a time instead of a dozen)
12 thin slices of deli ham (round)
1/2 Cup of your favorite cheese (I used Parmesan)
Fresh cracked Sea Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 400.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Lay a piece of ham in each hole creating a little ham cup.
Crack one egg into each hole and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10 minutes at 400 (or until the white is firm and the yolk is somewhat gelled and still a little runny - my experience has always been 10 minutes)
Sprinkle the top with chives and cheese.
Bake for 2-3 more minutes at 400.
Pop each cup out with a fork.
Serve hot - take a bite and watch it change.your.life.
Sorry that the edges of the ham are a little burnt. This picture was from my first try. (I've since learned to tuck the edges down a bit - they won't get burnt that way).
My husband likes to put each cup on top of an English Muffin half (this will increase your calories, but it is definitely extra yummy).
I love the combination of all the flavors. I think it tastes like Christmas morning. : )
If you try it, I hope you like it!
