I’m really impressed with the recipes found on Hormel’s website. This one is so unique, because I never would have thought of using a slice of ham as a basket for your eggs. Using ham instead of a tortilla makes it gluten free. Try this gluten free Eggs in A Basket Recipe.
Eggs In A Basket
- 1 large tomato, cut into 6 thin slices
- 6 large eggs
- 6 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 12 slices Hormel® Natural Choice® Honey Deli Ham
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Place oven rack in upper third of oven. Heat oven to 450ºF. Lightly coat 6 (6- to 8-ounce) custard cups or muffin cups with cooking spray.
Place tomato slices on paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Gently press tomatoes to soak up excess juice.
Gently press 2 slices ham into each custard cup, overlapping to fit. Place 1 slice tomato over ham, cutting to fit; top with 1 egg. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each egg with 1 tablespoon cheese.
Bake ham baskets 10 to 15 minutes or until eggs are desired doneness. Gently remove ham baskets from custard cups. Place on warm serving platter; sprinkle with chives.
