Instant Vortex Egg & Cheese Ham Cups

These are a fun little breakfast treat that can be made in minutes. Use whatever goodies you have on hand in them – add veggies (onions, peppers, broccoli), leftover meat (bacon, sausage, etc), or anything else that sounds good!

Instant Vortex Egg & Cheese Ham Cups | KETO & Low Carb

Individual ham and egg cups are perfect for weekend brunches or busy mornings!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 slices ham Could be more if the slices are small
  • ½ cup Mexican cheese Any cheese will work
  • 2 green onions diced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F on Bake
  • If the ham slices are big - cut in half and line the cups. If they are smaller just use one to line each cup.
  • Mix the egg, milk, and seasoning. Pour evenly into the ham cups.
  • Top with cheese and green onion. I like to push the cheese down into the egg mixture.
  • Bake 5 minutes. If the tops are browning after 5, use your cover. Cook another five until they are firm.
