This morning’s 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.
Morning Chaos With Kids
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 Starbucks coffee and whipped up this recipe (and took photos!) We left here at 6:32 am and if the dog had gotten her butt in the car, rather than running around chasing animals – it would have been 6:30 am.
I set the oven to go off in 20 minutes, just in case I was delayed at all. When I finished dropping her off at the school, and walked into the house – there was 4 minutes left on the oven timer! No burnt ham egg cups, SUCCESS! I need more keto breakfast meals like this that feed the family, and this keto mom!
If you like me, are always on the never ending quest to find new family keto recipes to feed not only us low carbers, but our carb eating family – this is a keto breakfast recipe that will be a win for everyone! The keto ham and egg cups recipe was a success. Each kid loved them. I added a strawberry smoothie (for the kids, those carb eaters!) and everyone walked out the door with a full belly and happy face. SUCCESS!
How to Freeze Baked Egg Cups
Next time, I need to double the breakfast egg cups recipe and freeze them for later. This makes a great keto meal prep meal as you can make several ahead of time, freeze and then have these to pop in the microwave or oven later!
If you are wanting to freeze these, make sure you are using freezer bags. Just place your keto ham and egg cups, at room temperature – into a freezer bag. Place them in the freezer until you are ready to eat them again!
Reheating Ham Egg Cups
To reheat the ham egg cups, simply place in the microwave on a microwavable plate for approximately 90 seconds.
Happy Carb Eating Kid
Hey Carb Eating Kid – THESE ARE LOW CARB EGG MUFFINS AND YOU LIKE THEM! Oh the simple satisfaction is making only 1 meal for the entire family, rather than making many to accommodate everyone’s diet.
Here’s a photo of my kid as he was eating. I asked what he thought about these baked egg cups. “I LOVE THEM, MOMMY. I NEED MORE.”
