Ham and Egg Cup


I specifically requested for the deli boy to get me the largest slice of honey ham he could. He shaved 4 slices on the spot just for me. You should have seen each slices. They're approximately 17cm in diameter, imagine that for yourself!

We've got some leftover chicken stuffings that no one exactly fancy. But when turned into cups like that, it was whooped down in less than 5mins! Have to be creative sometimes and try come out with new dishes using leftover and not let everyone know they are actually eating leftovers!


Butter a 1/2-cup capacity ramekin and gently flare the slice of ham in. You could make as many ramekins or as little as you like but general rule of thumb is 1 slice of large ham to 1 egg per ramekin per person. If yours are small, use 2 slices overlapping them a little. Spoon in 2-3 tablespoon full of any leftover chicken stuffing or dried pulled pork would do too. Bake them for a while in a preheated oven just to warm up the stuffing. Else, just nuke it in the microwave if you're running out of time.

Crack an egg on top of each. Throw in a couple of grape tomatoes and season generously with seasalt and pepper. Place them under the grilled until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny. If you pop it in the oven, you'll get an overly cooked egg. All the time, the yolk is done and the whites are still raw and uncooked. You could tell I am talking from experience, can't you?

Serve this for a fancy morning breakfast. You could prepare the buttered ramekin, ham and stuffing and keep it in the fridge the night before. Looks complicated but in actual fact, it's as easy as peanut. Your spouse will never know and will be so grateful that you've put in so much effort just to please him!
