Egg Baskets

This is our second favorite breakfast, Egg Baskets! They are ridiculously easy to make and fun to eat. Here's how to make them:

For each egg basket, you will need two slices of deli ham (other thin sliced meat will work just as well), an egg, a 1/2 tsp of milk or cream and some salt and pepper. That's it!!

Nestle the two slices of ham in a muffin tin, making a space in the middle.

Carefully crack open an egg into the space. I prefer farm fresh "brown betties" myself and when I get my own chickens that's what we'll always have. But for now, I have to rely on the efforts of the chickens of others...

Add a pinch of salt.

And a twist of pepper.

Pour about a 1/2 tsp of cream or milk into each cup.

They are ready for the oven!

Bake them in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Ta Da!! Egg baskets!

Loosen them gently with a fork and remove. Serve piping hot because no one likes cold eggs! (Even if they have a cool name like egg baskets.)

This was my breakfast...DELICIOUS!


  1. Annie - What a great idea! Going to see some friends later this week, hope to make these while I'm there. (They have chickens!)

  2. Hey Annie, are they eggs, hard or soft when you make these? Curious because they look yummy but I only like a hard egg.


I read each and every comment, thank you for sharing in our farm!
