Prosciutto Egg Cups
I’m a big fan of egg bake recipes for breakfast in the morning, like my Paleo Ham & Egg Breakfast Bake. These little individual cups bake so quickly they are easy to make the morning of or make ahead and have ready to reheat.

Ingredients For Prosciutto Egg Cups
All you need for this easy recipe is prosciutto, spinach, eggs and fresh cracked pepper which is optional.
How To Make Baked Egg Cups
This is one of the tastiest and easiest breakfasts you will make! Simply spray the muffin tin with avocado oil spray, lay a piece of prosciutto over top of each muffin cup and gently press and mold the prosciutto into the shape of the cup. Then layer in 3 spinach leaves per cup and crack an egg into each cup. Sprinkle each egg with freshly cracked black pepper if you choose and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.
How Do I Reheat Egg Muffins
To reheat you can pop these in the preheated oven on a parchment lined baking sheet at 300 degrees fahrenheit for 5-6 minutes or in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.
Tips For Making This Egg Cups Recipe
- Mold the prosciutto to the muffin cup so all parts of the cup are covered. Even though we spray the muffin cups with oil before lining the cups with prosciutto if any egg is able to get through to the pan they might stick. If this happens just run a butter knife around the edges of the pan before popping out the egg cups.
- Try to select eggs that are of equal size. Smaller eggs will cook faster and larger will require more cooking time. You can choose any size you have but selecting ones that are of equal size will allow for even cooking results through each egg cup.
- Store the egg cups once cooled. If you are not eating the egg cups immediately, allow them to cool before covering them in an airtight container in the fridge to avoid trapped moisture that could make them soggy.
- For added fat on Keto eat with sliced avocado. These little cups are great on their own but pair nicely with other foods as well for a complete breakfast.
