Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the leek, green onion, and salt and pepper; cook until soft and tender. Pour in the beef broth; whisk in the flour. Simmer until mixture becomes creamy and thick.

  • Line each muffin cup with 1 slice of ham to form a cup. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the leek mixture into the bottom of each ham cup. Top with a heaping tablespoon of cheese. Press the cheese down lightly with a spoon. Beat eggs and cream in a large bowl. Divide egg mixture evenly between the ham cups.

  • Bake cups in the preheated oven until set and golden, about 12 to 15 minutes. Allow baked eggs to rest for at least 10 minutes in muffin cups. Remove by gently pulling on the crisped ham edge and lifting up. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

I found the recipe when I plugged in a couple of ingredients I had on hand. I made it for my MOPS group this morning and I got RAVE reviews from many women in the group (about 50 women in all) that also asked for the recipe. I did substitute colby cheese but the rest I did by the recipe. I felt like it was fairly easy. A few steps but nothing very hard and it looked very impressive once it was done. I'll for sure be making it again for other get togethers. Read More

I thought this was a lot of work for a not very special result. Plus it calls for lots of ingredients I don't normally have on hand - leeks gruyere cheese ham slices cream. So it ends up being pricey. Read More

I liked it although the leek layer was a bit too mushy. My kids did not enjoy this recipe no matter how much Dr. Seuse I quoted at them. Read More

Was able to just barely use TWO thin slices of ham per cup and would do that again. Everybody loved these! But I don't cook much so it felt like a lot of work. Read More

I used ingredients I had already. Therefore I used pastrami instead of ham smoked gruyere and added portabella mushrooms (yes I had those on hand I am a foodie). My 4 yr old and 16 yr old ate it all in one sitting. Suffice to say it was pretty good. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll post a pic. Read More
