Healthy Recipe Ecstasy? Absolutely! This recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, carb-free and great for the Paleo Diet. Ham has a lot less sodium than Prosciutto so bonus points there and rumor has it that spice can speed up your metabolism.


  • 9 Slices Ham

  • 9 Eggs

  • 2 Tbsp Jalapenos, diced

  • 1 – 2 Tbsp Tabasco sauce

  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray. Place one slice of ham in each muffin hole. Cook for five minutes. (You need to cook the ham by itself first because it needs longer in the oven to crisp and you don’t want to overcook your eggs.)
  • Next, take the tin out of the oven. Crack one egg into each ham basket. Add a few dashes of tabasco on top of each egg.
  • Bake for five minutes. Then, turn down the oven to 350 degrees and bake for another five minutes (with this temperature you will get nice creamy eggs that are still just a little runny -perfect!). Take the tin out when the ham is nice and crispy and the eggs are set.
  • Sprinkle each egg in ham basket with salt and pepper to taste and then garnish with a few diced jalapeno. You can pick them up and eat them with your hands or, for the more civilized folks, use a knife and fork. Either way, I dare you to eat just one!
