Baked Eggs w/ Ham

Jump to Recipe

Whether you are looking for breakfast, dinner, or brunch recipes these Baked Eggs are just the ticket. Super fast to put together – ready in under 30 minutes. Super flavorful – the ham, parmesan, mushrooms, and scallions come together like a song. These Baked Eggs are also great if you need to feed a crowd.

Baked Eggs

You will want to make sure that the ham and mushrooms are all cut to the same size pieces so that they will cook at the same rate. Also, make sure that you use shredded parmesan and not grated, they do not melt the same way. You could also add in some different veggies – like bell peppers, tomatoes, or spinach. You could also switch out the ham for some cooked sausage. Adjustments may be needed to the cooking time to get the eggs done to your desired level of runniness. I did 15 minutes and got a runny yolk similar to a sunny-side-up egg. Just don’t go too long or you will end up with something like a hard-boiled egg!

Baked Eggs

If you don’t have individual baking dishes like the ones I used – you can make this in a 13×9 baking dish. Simply spread the ham mixture in the bottom after coating it with butter. Make 8 small wells evenly spaced and break the eggs into the wells. Cook for the same amount of time.

I served this with a side of toasted buttermilk bread and some homemade blood orange marmalade (super easy to make – 6-8 peeled and chopped blood oranges, 4 cups water, 5 cups sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1 tbsp pectin, boiled for 15 minutes then put into mason jars). It was a great sweet counterbalance to the savory baked eggs.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 6


  • 9 inch baking dish x 6


  • 12 Eggs
  • 1 lb Ham Steak diced
  • 1 cup Mushrooms diced
  • 2 Scallions chopped
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced

  • 1 tsp Parsley
  • 2 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 12 slices White Bread

  • Prepare all of the ingredients. Preheat oven to 400deg.
  • In a bowl, combine ham, scallions, mushrooms, oil, salt, pepper, parsley, onion, and parmesan cheese. Toss to coat.
  • Brush inside of each of the 6 baking dishes with melted butter. Spoon ham and veggie mixture into each dish, forming a well in the center for the eggs. Break two eggs directly into the well. Place dishes on baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes. (whites should be cooked through but yolks should still be runny).
  • Toast bread in toaster or all in the oven. After toasted, brush with remaining melted butter. Cut in half and serve alongside baking dish.

  1. Cindy Richter – I've been an Interior Designer and Home Stager (InteriorMotiv) for many years but have recently had the desire to blog. With the last of our 3 kiddos flying the coop soon, it seems to be the perfect time to start. Along with being empty nester's, we've decided to make a life change and live in the country. Eventually we’ll be moving from the suburbs of Dallas/Fort Worth to a tiny town in south Texas.

    Now I’m hungry! This looks delicious and I can hardly wait to try it. I actually have individual baking dishes and have never used them. Looking forward to it! Thanks for linking up at Farmhouse Friday. Pinned

    1. Lol I literally forced myself to come up with a recipe using the baking dishes because I hadn’t ever used them yet! Let me know how it turns out. My family loved this one!

  2. chinamom3078 – I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
