Baked Eggs with Ham

I spent the Thursday night at my parents house in Woodland, and my mom made this for dinner.

Cute, right? Not only cute, but simple and delicious! The eggs are a great texture, silky and spongy. I think this would make a great breakfast or brunch as well. We had toast and berries with it. Yum!

Baked Eggs with Ham

8 eggs (2 per ramekin)
4 slices of canadian bacon (or prosciutto, or ham)
Shredded cheese (use your favorite kind)
Green onions, sliced
Any other spices you like (thyme, dill, etc)
Spinach (optional, as we were eating we thought it would be good)
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350ยบ. Rub the ramekins with a paper towel dipped in olive oil. Place one slice of canadian bacon in the bottom of the ramekin and score with knife (so it comes out in pieces when you eat it). Crack two eggs on top of the ham (optional: poke the yokes and swirl the eggs if you don't like whole yolks. I think I'll do this next time). Sprinkle green onions, spices, and salt and pepper on top. Top with cheese. Place ramekins on a baking sheet and cook for 15–20 minutes. The original recipe (which I can't find), said to bake until the cheese has started to brown, but we thought the yolks were a little too firm, so do less time if you like a softer yolk.
Serves 4.
Enjoy! And be careful eating it out of the hot ramekin! ;)

My mom sent me home with a set of 6 ramekins, so what did I do? Made molten chocolate lava cakes of course! Stay tuned for the recipe!
