I found this recipe in the Aug issue of All You, and you can see the original here. It reminded me of my Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bites that I posted a few months ago. That was a huge hit with the family, so they were willing to try this this recipe as well.
You will need:
1-2 small potato
Place a ham slice into each of the cups in your cupcake pan, and reheat the oven to 375.
The original called for only 1 small potato. I used 2 since I thought my potato would not be big enough. I actually had a few too many potatoes. I also think next time I will just use frozen hash browns instead of peeling, dicing and browning my own. Dice the potato and brown in a skillet over medium heat with a little bit of vegetable oil. I changed the recipe a this step. The original called for diced onion, red pepper and salt to be added to the potatoes. My family does not like cooked onion or red peppers, so I just added some mixed onion and salt to add some flavor.
Place a spoonful of potates into each one of the cups. Since I had 2 potatoes, my cups were a little fuller than I think they were supposed to be.
Wisk together the eggs, mik and a little more salt, like you are making some scrambled eggs. I added 2 mor eggs because again I ddnt think it would be enough food for everyone. THe original said to only pour the egg mixture until the ham cup was 1/2 full. I didn't read that part of the recipe until later on, and I filled my cups all the way to the top.
The original said to bake for 15 minutes. Since I filled the cups more than I was supposed to I checked it and then added 5 more minutes. When the tray come out of the oven, I thought that it looked like something was missing.
There we go! It needed CHEESE. I had a handful of shredded cheddar cheese to each of them and put it back in the over for 5 minutes.
Yummy, cheese goodness!
Since I added more egg mixture than I was supposed to, egg had baked on the outside of the ham slice . In reality, it doesn;t really matter. They taste the same either way. I got a thumbs up from all. My son did say he preferred bacon to the ham, but still liked them both.
