After I was finished breastfeeding Bridget, I started following the Suzanne Somers diet. The diet focuses on food combining and limiting your carbs and sugar. I started back on it this winter, and I’m now down 40 lbs. It’s slow, but I’m getting there, and I don’t feel like I’m depriving myself of foods I love to eat.

One of the recipe ideas I found in one of Suzanne’s books was this delicious Ham and Eggs in a Muffin Tin. It’s quick and easy to make and hits the spot!

How Long Will Egg Cups Last In Refrigerator 

These ham and egg cups will last up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Which is great to eat during the week. Just pop one or two in the microwave to warm it up. 

Can you Freeze Ham and Egg Cups 

Yes! You can free ham and egg cups. Just allow the Ham and Eggs in a Muffin Tin to cool down slightly then place in single-serve freezer bags, and toss in the freezer. Or do an airtight container. Then grab one or two eggs and put in the fridge the night before or re-heat them straight from the freezer. 

They warm up nicely in the microwave. The one thing to watch is not to overcook them in the microwave, or you will get a more rubbery texture of the egg.

Tips For Making Ham And Eggs in a Muffin Tin 

Grease Pan | This is a must if you don’t want your muffin eggs stuck. Whether you grease with butter or cooking spray, it is a must. 

How Full To Fill | I recommend filling your eggs about 1/2 to 3/4 full. You need to ensure your egg can have room to expand as it cooks. Otherwise, it overflows. 

Veggies | If you choose to opt to add other meats or vegetables in the tins, make sure you dice them up small. It saves space in your muffin tins. 

Seasonings | Feel free to add a dash of pepper and salt. Or kick up the heat with say cayenne pepper or red chili flakes. It also adds a bit of color to your eggs. 

These are great the day of or save and eat for a quick breakfast to kickstart the day. I love this recipe and make it over and over again. I think a lot of you will enjoy this recipe as well and the ease of making it!
