Yum, right? So here's the story:
So last Friday night, I came across this pin - Ham and Egg Cups, this one via The Comfort of Cooking
I thought, well, it sounds good, but if it was that easy, surely everyone would make them.
Lo and behold, Saturday morning comes, I've pinned the recipe, and coincidentally find I have everything in the recipe. And then some.
Sweet. My boys love protein in the morning. I got to work.
I had the Black Forest Ham. I had eggs. And best of all? I had marinated mozzarella balls, my own addition to the recipe.
My grocery store carries this in the specialty cheese section. It's mozzarella preserved in oil and herbs, and it has a ton of flavor. It lasts a bit longer than the other kinds of mozzarella too.
Yeah, no. But awesome, right?.
I put a slice of ham in each cup, put a ball of mozzarella in the grown up cups (my boys won't eat it if they see green herbs), and filled the cups with eggs. But I can't stress enough how much you should grease the pan first. So much easier to clean that way.
The ham crisps up, so it's almost like bacon. I pierced the eggs, since I don't like raw yolks (esp. not with the kids). The cheese melts up on the bottom of the egg cup, and with the herbs, gives you a nice, rich flavor in each bit.
We made up some buttered toast to eat ours with...so delicious.
So, honestly? Make this stuff. It really is easy. And tasty.
