This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hillshire Brands Company.  The opinions and text are all mine.

I’m so excited for this warmer weather and the chance to be outside more. In my opinion, winter overstayed it’s welcome and I’m ecstatic to be finally able to ditch my basement treadmill and take my workout outdoors. I head to the local park most mornings to put in my miles.

Meandering through the trails, little hills and workout equipment that’s peppered throughout I work up quite the appetite. When I get back home my normal routine is to make a large skillet of cheesy scrambled eggs (3-4 eggs worth), ham and spinach. Not going to lie, I’m usually hangry at this point and having to cook it then isn’t optimal. What’s a girl to do?

Turn your post workout meal into a grab and go bite that’s what.

Although it’s great for a post workout meal, you don’t have to workout to enjoy this. Keto Ham and Egg Cups are also perfect as a make ahead breakfast for busy parents to serve both to themselves and their children in the morning. Just reheat for a few minutes in the microwave on reduced heat and voila.

To make these breakfast bites you’ll need a 6 count muffin tin. Or you could easily double the recipe and use a 12 count regular sized muffin tin.

The star of this egg cup is by far the black forest ham. I used Hillshire Farm® Black Forest Ham lunchmeat. Yes, I said lunch-meat. It’s not just for sandwiches y’all! Why Hillshire Farm? I like Hillshire Farm because it’s made with no artificial flavors, no preservatives, and no added nitrates or nitrites. That’s a very good thing.

You can find Hillshire Farm products at your local Walmart on the lunch-meat wall. It’s the one with the red lids! Did you know that Walmart now offers Online Grocery Pickup? They sure do! Check your local Walmart to see if OGP (Online Grocery Pickup) is available at a Walmart near you!

To assemble the Keto Ham and Egg Cups you’ll drape a slice of Hillshire Farm Black Forest Ham into each of the muffin tin wells that are lined with silicon molds or the like. If you don’t happen to have silicon molds you could use non-stick cooking spray in a pinch. Just be sure to generously spray each well so that the egg cups pop out once cooked.

Then equally divide the egg mixture (which contains all the goodness of eggs, cream, cheese and spinach) between each of the cups. Bake until the eggs are set, about 25 minutes and you’re one step closer to enjoying these low carb breakfast bites.

These Keto Ham and Egg Cups are packed full low carb goodness and are so easy to customize. If you’re not crazy about spinach try swapping that out for sweet bell peppers, asparagus, mushrooms and/or onions. Even cherry or grape tomatoes. The options are limitless. I like to use what’s on hand in my refrigerator making this a great clean out the fridge recipe!
