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. 🙂

    Egg cups are super yummy! I like bacon, asparagus, and cheese.

  2. K

    How many would be considered a serving?

    • societyhill

      I would assume two, as that would be two eggs and some meat and veggies, the standard. But if you are working out a lot, maybe three.

    • Mahmudul

      there are no limits for serving

  3. mel

    Thank you Lina! Sometimes I never know how much deli ham to get at the store. Some wks, the kids like to take sandwiches to school for lunch and it’s used up. Then this wk, I buy the ham and they want to eat the hot lunch, and I’m stuck with like 1/2 lb ham (Which I freeze in rolls for omelets, super easy to pull a roll out and dice up!) Dinner dilemma solved!

    • dee

      Thanks for the freezing tip! This too happens in our house and i hadn’t thought of freezing the extra ham.

    • Lina D

      Great idea!

      • mel

        just wanted to come back and say these were a HIT! Rooting through the freezer, I found a half bag of seasoning blend, so I grabbed that to use and as I was sauteing I groaned. I forgot it had celery in it LOL! Nobody complained (honestly, I couldn’t even taste the celery, as the onions & peppers stood out the most). I love how the eggs puffed up in the oven.

  4. Francie

    I love the Keto posts.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for the feedback!

  5. tctbtob

    Just made them and as soon as they cool I’m digging in. Low carb breakfast dilemma solved! Thank you sooo much!

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome!

  6. Danielle

    Yum!! So excited to try these!!

    • Lina D

      Thanks Danielle!

  7. Kat

    I had to make these right away they looked so good! Sadly I didn’t have vegetables to saute on hand but I did have spinach to put in them and they still turned out delicious. Took me almost no time to make. I really like how they’re like mini quiche but without the carbs from a pastry crust.

    • Lina D

      Yes great description Kat – thanks!

  8. sandra fultz

    please send keto recipes to me via e-mail.thanks!

  9. Karen

    Love the KETO posts! I have turkey on hand so I will try it with that instead but looking forward to trying this recipe!

    • *Angela-Miles*

      Me too, hopefully the turkey turns out well. I always have plenty of turkey on hand lol

  10. dollyW

    These look so good, like the egg bites at Starbucks which I have been wanting to make at home! I wasn’t sure how long to bake them or at what temp so thanks!!

  11. Jennlk84

    YUM! I think my family would love these.

  12. Sarah

    Prosciutto ones are yummy too!

  13. Tiffany

    I make these a lot, they’re always a hit. I mix salsa in, gives them a great flavor. A lot of times I’ll use a carton of egg whites in addition to whole eggs. These do freeze well and they make a great after workout snack!

    • mel

      Thanks, I was wondering if they froze good. My son requested this for breakfast during the wk and I’m like no way not every day LOL. But I can make a batch tomorrow to freeze and pop out as needed!

    • Lina D

      Great! Thanks for sharing those tips Tiffany! 🙂

  14. olgraygirl

    I have also made these in mini muffin form with canadian bacon–love flash-freezing and reheating. Also on a different note, I must tell you I got an instant pot for Christmas (after notifying hubby of a H2S-posted deal on one) and the first recipe I tried was your 30 min. ribs. Yummy! Gave me confidence to try other recipes and love my InstantPot. Please keep up the posts!!

    • Lina D

      Oh that;s awesome!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  15. JulieL

    These were a huge hit for breakfast this morning! I had mushrooms, onions and tomatoes on hand so I diced them up and tossed them on top, and topped with chives (needed to use them) and they turned out so delicious with tons of flavor! I halved the recipe but wish I hadn’t as there are none left over for tomorrow. Thank you for posting – this recipe is a keeper!

  16. Dragonfly121204

    These are the best with Boar’s Head rosemary ham. Just enough rosemary flavor to give it that extra yum factor.

    • Lina D

      Oh sounds delicious!

  17. Jeff

    I made these with Boar’s Head spicy ham and added in some feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes. Delicious!

  18. Wendy Jenkins

    How many carbs in one?

  19. Misty

    How many Carbs do these YUMMY things have?

  20. Beth Lierenz

    I’m also curious how many to eat in the morning on keto amd jow many carbs ….thanks very easy to meal prep for week love these

  21. Kristina

    Would peppered turkey lunch meat be an acceptable sub for ham if it’s what I have on hand? New to low carb eating!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I’m sure that’d be great as well. Yum
