In place of ham steak, you can use crumbled sausage or diced turkey breast.

  • Meanwhile, in a small nonstick skillet, melt 1/2 teaspoon butter over medium. Add red onion, bell pepper, and ham steak. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Divide vegetable mixture evenly among cups and top with cheddar. Bake 2 minutes. Remove from oven and crack 1 egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper and bake until whites are set but yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes. With a small offset spatula, remove cups from pan and serve immediately.

I love this recipe. The portion control is perfect. I added spinach and mushroom, with smoked gouda. I'm going to try and Curry this next weekend.

I have made this many times....very yummy! And, everyone is always very impressed with how cute they are! I do break the extra yolks from making the base and add that underneath the whole eggs so they aren’t wasted. If you will have leftovers, I would recommend not putting the egg on for those....they taste better reheated without the egg and then adding a fresh egg later. I have used bacon bits, real bacon crumbles, sausage (crumbled), diced pepperoni, and diced ham....and they all come out great. Love this recipe!

Since I don't eat "runny" eggs, I'll have to revamp this some. It will really be a great addition to our church breakfasts. I may experiment with bacon bits too.

Sounds great but I'm just one person and a not very good cook. As soon as I saw "6 eggs" I moved to another web site.

Loved this! Thinking we'll pair it with something sweet for Christmas morning breakfast. I didn't use frozen hash browns, rather I peeled, grated, and squeezed out the extra moisture from some Yukon golds. They worked great, I only used a little over 3 cups to fill the six compartments. Had I used all 4 the eggs would not have fit.

It didn't turn out as pretty as the picture. We didn't have room for the eggs on top either, but we made dippy eggs and put them on top afterwards. The kids had seconds of it too. They want us to make this again. Maybe I'll have better luck with presentation next time.

Marvelous recipe! Comes out perfect every time. Switch out the peppers or the ham for Spanish chorizo and it can be a meal with a small salad.

A huge familly hit- we've made these at least 4 times since we discovered this recipe. Very versatile, we've made them with flavored hashbrowns; also tried with bacon crumbles instead of ham. Taking this recipe to our beach vacation this summer for an easy supper. Great cold the next day, also!

This was good. I was looking for something different for a Saturday breakfast. I swapped out the onions for other vegetables, and even used just egg whites for my husband. It takes longer to make than waffles, but when it's -10 degrees out who wants to go to a resturant!
