Keto Egg Cups – this ham and egg cups recipe is your next must add to your low carb breakfast menu!
Our morning breakfast for the family was keto ham and egg cups, made in a muffin pan! You could call these ham egg muffins, or breakfast egg muffins – I left the keto word out when the kids eagerly asked “WHAT ARE THESE!?”
Our mornings, which if you have littles at home – I am sure you can relate to – are crazy. It’s all about checking off a list of to-do’s with the goal in getting 5 humans out the door, but first fed, dressed and packed for the day.
Okay, the husband can dress himself, but I do make his breakfast and sometimes his lunch. All that said, mornings are crazy.
Easy Keto Breakfast with Eggs
My daughter has morning marching band practice. We leave here by 6:30 am. Today, I woke up at 6:15 am, got my keto coffee and whipped up this ham egg cups recipe (and took photos!)
This is a super easy keto breakfast dish to make. After I put it all together, I threw it in the oven,, set the oven timer to go off in 20 minutes, in the event I didn’t make it back in time. Or lets face it – got busy trying to get the other kids ready when I got home.
We left here at 6:32 am and if the dog had gotten her butt in the car, rather than running around the yard – it would have been 6:30 am.
SUCCESS! Daughter dropped off at school, and when I walked in there was 4 minutes left on the oven timer! No burnt ham egg cups, SUCCESS!
