These healthy Egg Muffin Cups make weekday breakfasts easy and fun, especially if you’re on the go! Made with deli ham, roasted poblanos and a few simple seasonings, they’re perfect on their own or great served with toast, fresh fruit or yogurt.
Confession time – I love egg muffin cups!
I’ve posted a few different flavor combinations on the blog before (see Egg Cups 3 Way – Chipotle Sweet Potato, Verde & Fajita and Chicken Green Chile Egg Muffins), and I still can’t get enough!
They’re so easy to make, they’re a great healthy breakfast option for busy weekday mornings and they’re kinda fun to eat if you ask me.
This Ham and Poblano Egg Muffin Cup recipe is my latest flavor combo that I’m obsessed with. Roasted smoky poblano peppers, extra protein from the ham to make everything a little more filling and a simple seasoning to tie everything together. You can’t go wrong!
How to make these Egg Muffin Cups
First, you’ll need to roast and chop some poblano peppers. Instructions are included in the recipe card below. (If you’ve never roasted poblanos before, take a look at this post on how to roast poblano peppers with easy step-by-step photos of the process.)
Once you’ve got your poblanos roasted and chopped, spray a regular-sized 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
Place 2 slices of deli ham into each muffin cup and press them down to form them into little cups. If the deli ham you have is very large, you can use one slice, folding it in half to fit in the muffin cups.
Evenly distribute the chopped poblanos into each cup.
Then, gently crack an egg into each up if you like your eggs whole. If you’re like my husband and prefer your eggs scrambled, whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl and pour them into each cup.
Top each egg muffin cup with a simple seasoning mixture of black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes, until eggs are cooked through and firm.
Let them cool down for 10 minutes before removing them from the tin, top with a little chopped cilantro and eat up!
Don’t these look amazing?! I can’t wait for you to try them!
