Savory delight! Thanks for correcting the temperature per prior reviews. My ham was not cut very thin, in fact, I tore off pieces to form the cup, and then allowed extra cooking time until the yolks set to my personal preference. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

This turned out GREAT!! They were done in the time specified, and we all enjoyed them. I did have to sub in grated cheddar for the grated parmesan, as that was all I had on hand. Simple yet impressive breakfast. Thanks for posting! Made for the ZWT 3 :)

Perfect Pixie, nice little recipe you have shared here. Thank you, but I think you may have forgotten to add centigrade (C.) to your oven temperature as the two Zaar members who added their review noted they needed to raise their oven temperature. Recipe #94624 is similar to yours where instructions are to preheat the oven to 180C (350F). I'm looking forward to trying your recipe the next time my grandchildren spend the weekend with me.
