Ham, Egg and Spinach Cups

When looking for inspiration, browsing the Food and Drink board on Pinterest is one of my favourite things to do.  A few times now, I’ve seen bacon wrapped frittatas (e.g. http://bestfoodpins.com/archives/8465) and then the other day I saw a recipe that used ham (http://ohsnapletseat.com/2013/01/14/a-paleo-breakfast-baked-eggs-in-ham-cups/) – which gave me the idea for this recipe.  I’ve also added some spinach to squeeze in a serve of vegetables.

Serves 4

Ham Egg Spinach FrittataIngredients

5 slices ham off the bone, fat trimmed (~230g)

1. Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 12-hole muffin pan

2. Cut each slice of ham into 5 even pieces (~2.5-3cm wide)

3. Lay one piece into each hole of the muffin pan and lay another piece perpendicular to the first one; push into the base of the each hole

4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt and pepper
