Scottie's Eggs

Scottie's Eggs

These are my Aunt Dorothy's specialty and they quickly became one of my favourites.  I like to think of these as the low-carb option for a gourmet egg mc'muffin. All the egg and ham (... and... cream) without the bread - Atkins would be proud.


  • 12 eggs

  • 12 thin slices black-forest ham

  • 6 tbsp heavy cream

  • grated cheese of your choice (I prefer sharp cheddar)

  • salt and pepper

  • sliced green onion, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line two muffin tins with black-forest ham, creating small cups.

  2. Crack egg into each cup, making sure not to spill egg out the side.

  3. Add 1/2 tbsp cream to each and season with salt & pepper. 

  4. Bake for 15-25 minutes until desired doneness.

  5. Top each with grated cheese and continue to cook 1 minute longer.

  6. Remove from oven and garnish with scallions. Serve next to crisp potatoes and avocado.
