Cooking Time20 min


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or half n half
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 tablespoons basil
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon
  • 1 to 2 scallions, chopped
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 slices ham, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Put aside 1 tsp each of the herbs, the cherry tomatoes and 1/4 cup of cheese to top the eggs.
  3. Whisk all other ingredients, except for the ham together in a bowl.
  4. Lightly grease a muffin tin (if using a 'Texas-size' tin, you'll need to double the recipe).
  5. Fit ham slices in each muffin slot and fold slightly to fit, making a 'cup' for the egg mixture. The edges will come up over the top, you want that! They will also char slightly when cooking, that's ok, too.
  6. Pour egg mixture into each 'ham cup' to about 3/4 full (they will rise).
  7. Place 2 halves of cherry tomato on top. Top that with remaining cheese & herbs.
  8. Fill the empty muffin slots with water, about 1/2-3/4 full, to aid cooking (good idea for any baking to fill those empty slots).
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes.

These are really cute. I had never thought of cooking ham slices quite this way before and it makes for a really visually appealing and unusual dish. I want to file this recipe away for special occasion use since it looks really impressive for the minimal effort it takes. Kudos to the ones who came up with this nifty way of serving ham and eggs.
