Mornings are tough for my hubby. He gets up early – earlier than me, and usually runs off to work without eating. He doesn’t want to take the time to make anything to eat, he’d rather just grab and go and I get it. If he doesn’t eat breakfast, by 10:30am he’s already hangry for lunch. I do intermittent fasting so I’m good to go until 12-1pm but my babe needs his morning fuel.
I found this grab and go breakfast in a Going Keto recipe book. You can make them the night before so all you, or your in-a-hurry honey have to do is pop one in the microwave or toaster oven to heat them up. Just make sure you buy local, hormone and antibiotic free ham. If you’re in the Midwest, Mariano’s carries a local line of deli meats that are fantastic and healthy. Just ask the deli counter and they’ll hook you up.
1T coconut oil, melted
6 slices of ham, the thinner, the better
6 large eggs – you can scramble them if you’d like
Salt and pepper to taste
3T shredded cheddar cheese – or not, depending if you can tolerate dairy
Preheat the oven to 400. Brush six cups of a muffin tin with the melted coconut oil.
Line each cup with 1 slice of ham. Crack 1 egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle 1/2 T of cheddar cheese on each egg.
Bake for 13 – 18 minutes depending on how you like your egg yolks set. Like I mentioned, I like to scramble my eggs so my babe can actually grab and go and not have runny eggs all over his suit pants…lol. Yeah, I’m thoughtful that way.
Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before carefully removing the ‘muffins.’ Refrigerate in a glass or plastic container so they don’t get smushed or dried out.
They’re not pretty but they sure are yummy!
