Eggs Baked in Ham Cups

This recipe appears on Pinterest as well as numerous cookbooks I own. Easy and tasty.

6 thin slices of ham
6 large eggs
grated white cheddar, mozzarella, Gouda or other cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line each muffin cup with a slice of ham, letting it ruffle up the sides. Crack an egg into each, sprinkle with a bit of cheese and season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the white is set but the yolk is still runny. Serve immediately on a plate or set in small dishes for extra support. Serves 3-6.

You could add some chopped spinach to the bottom of the cup before putting in the egg. Or top with Hollandaise-I always make Marion Cunningham's Blender Hollandaise which is easy and perfect every time.
