Recipe - Oven Baked Egg and Ham nests

[Please note: I've cut one of the 'nests' in half in this picture. Just to demonstrate what it looks like inside.]

This is one of my favorite things to cook and eat for breakfast, although you can cook it for lunch or dinner if you feel like it. Make it purdy enough and you could serve it as a starter.

It takes almost no time to prepare and it cooks itself in the oven while you do other stuff. The perfect breakfast dish.

Yet again, this is something that's easy to freestyle. You can add and subtract things, just go for what feels right.

I've used muffin trays of various sizes and shapes for this, use what you got. There's no right or wrong. This time I used my silicone muffin tray, which doesn't need to be oiled or anything and makes it really easy to turn out the little egg and ham nests.

Ingredients (per serving)
1 egg
Parma ham, to line with
Double cream
Parmesan, grated

Heat the oven to 200c.

Line the muffin tray 'holes' with parma ham. Crack one egg into each hole. Pour in tabasco to taste. Add a glug of cream and finish off with some grated parmesan.

Put the muffin tray into the oven and let the eggs bake until done to your liking.



  1. Gosh, classy easy ... my kind of cooking!
