You know how everyone says they’re looking for an easy paleo breakfast? Well this yummy all-in-one dish couldn’t be more simple…
It really is a no-brainer with minimal prep time. We used Applegate-brand ham slices along with eggs and chopped veggies to create these awesome egg cups.
We know it’s hard to cook up breakfast when your working or have a busy morning. That’s why we like to make a batch up of these on Sunday, put each one in a baggie, and have breakfast ready to go for a few days during the work week.
If you have kids, these little pockets of protein are perfect. Heat up an egg cup and serve it with a little fruit before school and they’re good to go. And you’ll feel good feeding them a long-lasting, energy-packed breakfast. [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-2zafrq’]
I know egg cups have been done before. But I love this recipe for its simplicity. It’s one you’ll want to make over and over again I’m sure.
Tasty little savory cups with a hint of peppers and a little cream from the coconut milk. Give them a try and add whatever other yummy ingredients you like or happen to have on hand.
It’s paleo easy and that’s what we like. Right? :)

Did you use the canned coconut milk or the refrigerated beverage type? TY
Gloria, I use canned, but you could use either. It’s just to make the texture of the eggs a bit more creamy. :)

How long would these last in the fridge?
My guess would be a few days in the fridge Sarah…I usually freeze extras of these and reheat…I know that works out well :)
How do you reheat it? Microwave or oven?
Either will work fine. :)
Great recipe. I’m not on a paleo diet so I substituted cottage cheese for coconut milk. I also added spinach and they were very yummy!
Way to get creative Lauren…sounds delicious! :)
my kids doesnt like bell pepper, i change it with tomato , tkkss for the recipe… :D
Lia, you are welcome! The tomato is a great idea! :)
Just made these day. Delicious!! Thanks!
Ham and Egg Cups: Easy, quick and delicious. I put diced tomato and green chiles in mine. Excellent recipe! Thank you.
You are very welcome. :)
Do you have to use milk? I usually whisk my eggs with water?
Hi Kelly, you sure can. I just add it for a more creamy texture. :)
will almond milk work? I’m allergic to coconuts
I think it would work just fine. :)
Oohhh perfect to pack for work!
Those look yummy! How long do you reheat them?
