We love this great-start breakfast that is a lot easier and healthier than a full English breakfast

Family breakfast baked eggs & ham

The perfect family breakfast for weekends at home – and simple too. For extra taste, you could add a blob of ketchup or Daddies sauce on top. And its short preparation time means it works well as a quick after-school tea too.

Ingredients

  • a little butter
  • Thick ham 1 piece
  • large egg 1
  • grated Gruyère cheese 1 tbsp
  • some crusty bread or toast

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 6. Rub a little butter inside a ramekin. Break up the slice of ham into the bottom. Crack the egg on top, then sprinkle the cheese over. Bake for 12–15 minutes.

    Let it cool slightly and wrap a wet napkin around the outside of the ramekin for the children, in case it is too hot.

  • Step 2

    Serve straight from the oven for adults with crusty bread, or toast, that can be cut into soldiers, for children.
