Easy Paleo Ham & Egg Cups

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…

whole30 compliant recipe markIt 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. 

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? :)

    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!
