Breakfast or brunch just got a little easier and a lot more elegant. This easy egg muffin recipe is loaded with ham, crisp bacon and healthy spinach. It's a great solution for an on-the-go breakfast or even as part of a more elaborate brunch or breakfast for dinner.

This baked savory muffin recipe is flavored with garlic powder, onion powder and hot sauce, and gets its cheesiness from cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese. But you could use your favorite cheese instead. The bacon adds saltiness and crispiness. Perfect! 

To make these savory breakfast muffins you will need ham (used that leftover holiday ham!), eggs, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, hot sauce, frozen spinach, cheese and crisp cooked bacon. Serve these eggs cups for brunch, lunch or even breakfast for dinner

So I tried these but I used mature cheddar, sun-dried tomatoes & caramelised onion. Even though they look god awful (they stuck really badly even though oiled my tins really well. I’m going to get some cake cases to try them.
There are so many different combinations to try & I can’t wait to try as many as I can think of.
