I don't know about you, but sometimes when I wake up, I just don't have the desire to cook a fancy breakfast. No one ever said that we have to make meals like eggs benedict every single day, and quite frankly that doesn't sound like a fun way to relax in the morning. Usually I like to keep my meals simple in the morning, and this Baked Ham and Eggs recipe definitely fits the category!

About the Ingredients in Baked Ham and Eggs
Pastured Eggs are packed full of nutrients, especially compared to commercially raised eggs. Research shows that eggs from pasture-raised chickens are much higher in fat-soluble vitamins and many other nutrients. Joel Salatin and I also talked about this on our podcast together.
Rosemary has been used for a long time due to its medicinal uses. It has been known to help alleviate muscle pain, improve memory, boost the immune and circulatory system, and much more. Not only does it taste delicious, but it can help the functions of the body!
Baked Ham and Eggs
One thing to take note on with this recipe is that you will want a pan that is oven-safe. I use my stainless steel pans that work perfectly for cooking like this (this is the one I use). You can move the pan right from the stove-top into the oven with no issues.
While you are waiting for the oven to heat up, set the pan on the stove on medium heat. Add some coconut oil and wait for it to melt. Set some slices of high quality ham in a circle around the pan, with all slices overlapping in the middle. Crack the eggs over the middle and allow them to slide wherever they want to.
Place in the oven, and go get ready for your day. After about 10 minutes your meal will be all ready to eat. Depending on how you like your eggs, allow the dish to cook a little longer for firmer eggs, or for less time if you want runny eggs. This is a very easy way to make ham and eggs without taking over your entire morning!
Baked Ham and Eggs
Baked Ham and Eggs is a quick way to whip up breakfast while you jump into the shower. By the time your shower is done, breakfast is ready.
- 3 slices Ham Use high quality ham, not just lunch meat
- 3 farm fresh Eggs Pasture-raised
- 1 tsp Rosemary
- 1 pinch Himalayan Salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place an oven-safe pan on medium heat on the stove.
- Add coconut oil to pan, allowing the oil to create a non-stick surface for the ham and eggs.
- Once coconut oil is melted, lay slices of ham in a circle around the pan, with the centers overlapping. This makes it so the ham doesn't come apart when you move the food onto a plate.
- Crack the eggs over the center of the ham, allowing them to fall wherever they desire.
- Sprinkle salt and rosemary over the top. Add to the oven.
- Allow to cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the eggs are a consistency you desire.
- Remove from pan onto a plate and enjoy!
