Eating Keto or low carb?

Here’s a convenient and healthy make-ahead breakfast idea that’ll make your mornings run a little smoother! Just grab a muffin tin and fill it with ham, eggs, cheese, and any veggies you’d like. Bake these Ham & Cheese Cups in the oven, and enjoy them right away or as a delicious and easy to re-heat breakfast option later!

Baked Ham and Cheese Cups

Prep these delicious baked Ham & Cheese Cups for a yummy make-ahead breakfast recipe idea!

Serves: 12


  • 10 large eggs
  • 12 slices of deli ham
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 and 1/2 cups diced veggies (I used bell peppers, red onion, and green onion)
  • nonstick spray for muffin tin


  • Step 1:

    Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray. Place a piece of ham in bottom of each cup.

  • Step 2:

    Add a little shredded cheese to each cup. Whisk eggs together and pour into each cup.

  • Step 3:

    Chop and saute veggies for a few minutes with a small amount of olive oil and add salt & pepper to taste.

  • Step 4:

    Add a little of the veggies to the top of each cup.

  • Step 5:

    Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes until eggs are set. Makes 12 individual sized cups

I love this recipe idea because it’s so versatile!  Just swap out veggies based on what add-ins you prefer and customize with ingredients your family loves. You could even use cooked bacon or crumbled breakfast sausage instead of ham.

How easy and simple are these?!

Your Ham and cheese cups can be quickly reheated in the microwave for a quick and filling breakfast. Just grab and go! And of course, it’s a tasty breakfast option even if you’re not cutting carbs as well. 🙂

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
