Cooking Tips

  • Cheese Choice: Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese for a gooey, delicious texture, then bake the ham and egg pie until the cheese turns golden brown.
  • Don’t Use Beaten Egg: Use unbeaten eggs cracked directly into the crust to maintain the distinct egg structure, allowing for a more visually appealing and traditional pie presentation.
  • Without Muffin Tin: You can use a tart pan to make mini ham and egg pies if you don’t have a muffin tin. Press the biscuits into each cavity to form the pie base, adapting their size as needed for a snug fit.
  • Chopped Ham: You can also opt for using ham that has been finely chopped using a food processor in your delicious ham and egg pie recipe. This method ensures a more consistent texture throughout the pie, enhancing the overall taste and presentation of this delightful dish.

Substitutions

  • Puff Pastry: As an alternative to jumbo refrigerated biscuits in the mini ham and egg pie recipe, this puff pastry provides a flakier, buttery crust. Line the muffin tin cavities with a sheet before adding the egg mixture. Use one sheet per muffin tin or two sheets if you’re doubling the recipe.

Variations

  • Extras: If desired, you can add additional ingredients to the pies to give them an extra boost of flavor. Consider mixing chopped green onion, diced bell peppers, or cooked bacon in a large bowl and then using in your ham and egg pies.
  • Cheese: You could also sprinkle a bit of grated Parmesan cheese on top for added taste.
  • Red Pepper Flakes: Add a spicy kick to your mini ham and egg pie. Sprinkle on top before baking for a flavorful contrast.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Storage: Let your leftover ham and egg pies cool to room temperature. Then, pop them into an airtight container or cradle them like precious jewels with plastic wrap.
  • Freezing: Label the container with a touch of foresight and the freezing date, then freeze these mini delights for up to 2-3 months. They’ll be your handy breakfast companions when you thaw and reheat.
  • Reheating: If your mini pies have been on ice, thaw them in the refrigerator and then reheat in the oven or microwave. Watch them transform into warm, savory treasures ready to kickstart your day!

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • Herb Roasted Potatoes: Toss baby potatoes in olive oil, rosemary, and thyme. Roast until golden and crisp.
  • Green Beans: Sauté green beans in garlic butter, sprinkle with Parmesan and finish with a squeeze of lemon.
  • Creamy Coleslaw: Toss shredded cabbage and carrots in a creamy dressing for a refreshing crunch.
  • Sweet Potato Wedges: Season sweet potato wedges with Paprika, and cumin, and bake until crispy on the outside.

FAQ’S

Do I Have to Use a Muffin Tray?

No, you can also make mini ham and egg pies without a muffin tray. To do this, simply use an oven-safe skillet or baking dish.

Place the flattened biscuits onto the dish, crack the eggs in the center of each biscuit, top with diced ham, and bake in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes.
If you want to use the muffin tray i would recommend the following Nonstick Muffin Pan! It’s great.
