These are something that I’ve seen 100,000 versions of on Pinterest; however, I’d never tried them until now. I basically put together what I would normally put in scrambled eggs into a muffin tin that had ham in the cups. So…let me clarify something about these being Whole30 compliant–technically, compliant lunch meat is VERY hard, if not impossible to find. This is the only thing we use lunch meat for, so when we are on a Whole30, we usually avoid these. If I really feel like making them (and they ARE delicious…so I would make them every day if I didn’t think I’d get sick of eggs every day LOL), I just get the best quality lunch meat that’s available. Around here, that’s Boar’s Head…and I honestly can’t remember whether this “flavor” is totally compliant or not. I get Boar’s Head Black Forest ham. Never tried Boar’s Head lunch meat before? You’re seriously missing out. It’s delicious. It’s more expensive, but it’s worth the price…ESPECIALLY the medium-rare roast beef. Octothorpe DROOL.
You can add whatever you want to these, but here is what I used:
Paleo Breakfast Cups
12 slices Boar’s Head Black Forest ham
1/4 C chopped yellow onion
1/4 C chopped green onion
1/2 C chopped mushrooms
1/2 C chopped Roma tomatoes
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 – 1 C chopped spinach
2 Tbsp chopped basil (or 2 tsp dried)
1/2 C canned coconut milk
salt and pepper
1.- Preheat oven to 425. Oil muffin pan and place one piece of ham into each cup. Press it down slightly so it resembles a cupcake liner. If your ham (or whatever meat) is thin, use two slices. A little bit of the egg mixture will seep out, regardless, but they’re easier to handle if there’s a little substance.
2.- Crack all eggs into large bowl. Whisk until scrambled. Add coconut milk and whisk to combine. Stir in all add-ins and seasonings.
3.- Pour about 1/4 C or so of egg mixture into each ham cup. Put in oven and bake 15-20 minutes, or until desired done-ness. Figure on people eating two or three each. Well…three if it’s the entire meal. Two if there are side dishes involved!
