23 Feb Sean's Keto Ham and egg cups
These are super keto meals for either a quick breakfast that last hours, a snack for those busy days or a I’m not really hungry meal (a regular keto benefit, so you just have 1 or two cups to fill a void when you don’t feel like an entire meal!)
Coconut oil or lard to grease pan
6 ham slices (at least 4 inch (10cm) in diameter)
6 large eggs
Sea salt to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon)
Black pepper, ground, to taste
Chopped chives to garnish (also adds flavour)
6 tablespoons keto mock Basil Hollandaise (optional)
Keto mock Basil Hollandaise (optional)
1 cup of full fat egg mayo (no soy or seed oils (sunflower canola etc) – olive oil is allowed. Must be egg mayo ONLY for keto). No salad dressings etc.
1/2 cup basil leave shredded.
Add ingredients to blender and blend till smooth.
It will look kind of greenish but that’s what you want.
Preheat oven to 400F (200C), grease 6 well muffin tin (the big muffin tins)
Place ham slice in each well
Break an egg into each, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake 12 min, or until eggs are set but yolks are still runny.
Serve garnished with chives and to up the keto benefit add 1 tablespoon basil mock Hollandaise.
Each serving is 3 ham and egg cups.
A keto breakfast – keto snack or keto ‘im not really hungry’ meal
