Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
non-stick vegetable spray
4 ham slices
1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese
4 large eggs
1 stalk green onion — chopped fine
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the inside of 4 cups in a standard-size muffin tin with npn-stick vegetable spray..

Fit 1 slice of ham into each cup, pressing down to gently line the cup. The ends will stick up over the edges of the cups before cooking. (The ham shrinks during baking resulting in a more cup-like appearance.).

Top each slice of ham with shredded cheese and 1/4 of the chopped green onion. Crack an egg into each ham cup.

Position muffin pan in middle of oven and bake until whites are cooked and yolks are almost firm, about 18-20 minutes If any large bubbles form on the eggs during baking, pierce them with a toothpick or wooden skewer while they cook.

Remove the baking pan from the oven and season eggs with salt and pepper. Using 2 teaspoons or small spatulas, carefully lift the full ham cups out and place them on a serving plate. Serve immediately.
