A classic and simple combo that’s hard to beat! Pick up honey-glazed ham for a nice sweet undercurrent of flavor. You can also use Canadian bacon.

Gluten-free, Grain-Free


  • Cooking spray
  • 6 slices ham lunch meat
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Liberally spray six cups of a regular size muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Line each of one of the sprayed cups with one slice of the ham.
  3. Carefully break an egg into each cup.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle evenly over the egg cups. Sprinkle cheese evenly over cups.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes (for a soft yolk) or 12-15 minutes (for a hard yolk). Let cool for 10 minutes in the muffin tin, then use a knife to loosen the sides of the cups and lift them out with a spoon.
