To all foodie pinners out there this is a familiar sight, Pinterest is absolutely full of knacky recipes like this one, I must have pinned (or salivated) over twenty of these recipes since I joined Pinterest. I gotta tell you this one was hard to resist, it's so easy to make, quick to prepare and a real crowd pleaser. It's the type of recipe you can pull out for breakfast, lunch or at tea time, actually when I come to think of it anytime you're feeling peckish this is a winner (wouldn't this make a nice alternative to quiche as finger food at a party). I would consider this as the basic recipe, you could jazz this up any way you please....Enjoy!
8 Slices of cooked ham
8 Medium eggs
1 tbsp Dried parsley
50g Grated cheddar, grated (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4. Grease or oil eight holes of a muffin tray, place a slice of ham in each of the holes. Gently ease the ham into the base of the muffin tray, crack an egg into each of the ham pockets.
Season each egg with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Sprinkle with the dried parsley or if you prefer ......
...top with a grated cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the egg is cooked to your liking.
I think that two baked eggs per person is a fair portion once served toast and a large comforting mug of steaming coffee.
