Baked Ham and Eggs

Here is an easy-to-make breakfast that puts those Thanksgiving leftovers to use! If you have never tasted baked eggs before, oh man you are in for a treat- they are surprisingly very good- and you avoid the unneeded fats from the butter or oil you use to fry an egg in a pan.

Here is my original recipe and following it are some alternative ideas for you vegetarians out there:

Baked Ham and Eggs


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • Half of a roma tomato, diced
  • Handful of shredded mozzarella cheese (the picture here does not have cheese, but you get the point…)
  • Salt, pepper

These portions are good for a small glass baking dish where the bottom can be filled with 4 eggs. This recipe feeds 2 people, but increase the size of the dish and the portion of ingredients to feed more.

To Do:
Heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Spray a glass baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.

Crack open the 4 eggs into the dish. Top the egg whites with the diced ham and diced tomatoes.

Sprinkle the whole thing with salt, pepper, and the cheese.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes (depending how soft you want the yolk) or until the cheese starts to brown around the edges.

Cut with a spatula to serve it after it cools for a minute- and enjoy!

If you are not a ham eater, try sprinkling in some thawed, drained frozen spinach, or other leftover Thanksgiving veggies! Diced green peppers or red onions go nicely as well…. Imagine the endless possibilities!
