baking brunch edition: eggs in ham cup

Sometimes I like to cook.  And this recipe is a total brunch crowd pleaser.  My instagram and FB posts gets lots of love and my guests are always pleased.  Its simpler than an omelette or poached egg (2 other favorites of mine).  You can really throw in whatever you like.  I like plain with some parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and arugula or marche rosettes for a little flavor and presentation.

I added some fresh Farmers Market strawberry's and local strawberry jam.

1. Preheat oven to: 390 (uhhh don't ask how I found this out, but works perfectly)
2. Oil/Butter your ramekim reallllly good.  its a gonna be a nightmare cleaning these suckers if you forget this step. (side note - you need ramekins if you don't have them)
2. Cover your ramekin in thinly sliced ham (do not use shaved ham).  I usually use 2 - 3 pieces of ham per ramekin.
3. Drop an egg or two into the ham cup, whatever tickets your fancy
4.  Throw in whatever you want. This is where I insert some cherry tomatoes, onions, bacon, salt, pepps, etc.

Voila - set the timer to 15 minutes, you might need more or less time depending on your oven, just watch the ham closely - I tend to often burn the top
