OH CRUMBS !: CHEESY HAM AND EGG BASKETS

Posted on

One of the problems I leave out maximum whilst being confined to quarters is having a nice lunch out.

 

We steadily go out to lunch each and every week or two, primarily on a spur of the second one basis, then again in any case, “that particular road of enjoyment is nowadays closed off”.  So, in our efforts to make some of the absolute best of problems, now we have been making an attempt to have additional attention-grabbing foods.  Normally out of necessity (shortage of gear) however as well as as recreational.  Eating out is recreational in the end and we do leave out that.  Dredging my memory for lunch inspiration I was reminded of the ones tasty little frittatas which we first had ultimate twelve months and you in all probability can see the original idea proper right here.  

 

You line a muffin tin with unusual ham and fill with an eggy mixture and other bits and pieces.  I used cheddar cheese and tomatoes then again it’s possible you’ll use sliced peppers, bits of spring onion, chunks of goats cheese, one thing along those lines.

 

You could in any case merely make one huge frittata in a pan with bits of ham in it as a substitute, then again cooking them like this you end up with little ham baskets with crispy edges and a delectable filling.  This fashion takes slightly bit longer to prepare then again time is something we are not short of in the intervening time.  Every is a portion for a snack, or two or 3 each make a nice lunch.  Serve with salad, crusty bread or, for individuals who’re feeling that aspect out, chips!

 

Components

 

6 slices of unusual grocery retailer ham (no longer too thick then again no longer the wafer thin selection)

6 eggs

2 tblsp whole milk (it’s possible you’ll use cream!)

2 medium tomatoes

a handful of grated cheddar cheese

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 200C / 180 fan / gas mk6.  Butter a six hole muffin tin (or double up the parts for a 12 hole tin, keep watch over all of the manner all the way down to make merely 4).

 

If your ham is in excellent small rounds, make 4 slashes in each slice to be able to tuck them into the tin to line each hole, overlapping the edges.  (See symbol.)  If using the larger oblong or sq. slices of ham very similar to you find in France, use a saucer, jam jar or similar as a template to cut rounds of more or less the right kind dimension previous than slashing them.  You could wish to experiment slightly and when you find yourself with scraps of ham merely upload them to the combination or save them for something else (omelette, pasta, quiche, dog, and plenty of others.).

 

Whisk the eggs and milk jointly in a jug, season with salt and pepper (it’s possible you’ll upload herbs for individuals who like) and divide similarly between the holes.  Upload a slice of tomato and a very good sprinkling of grated cheese on prime.

 

Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown and overestimated.  Remove from the oven and allow the filling to chill out previous than removing gently with a palette knife.

 

Serves 2-3 other folks, depending on how hungry they are and what you serve with them.
