Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

These baked egg ham and cheese cups are such a healthy make-ahead keto breakfast idea that’ll make your mornings run a little smoother! Just grab a muffin tin and fill it with ham, eggs, cheese, and any veggies you’d like. Enjoy them right away or as a delicious and easy to re-heat breakfast option later! It’s both convenient and extremely delicious.

I love this recipe idea because it’s so versatile! Just swap out veggies based on what add-ins you prefer and customize with ingredients your family loves. You can even use cooked bacon or crumbled breakfast sausage instead of ham. I’m definitely trying that next. These bites are pretty irresistible, so make sure you’re making enough to satisfy your taste buds!
