  • Perfect hand held ham, egg, and cheese bites right??!!

When cooled they are perfect for early game times and hitting the road early when you’re headed on a road trip. We love them! As always this recipe is super easy (doesn’t happen in this house unless it is). And you can make them as loaded or simple as you want.

The base of these ham and cheese breakfast bites is refrigerated pizza dough. That’s good for SO many recipes like this one and our muffin tin pizza recipe too.

  • You add all your favorite breakfast ingredients like egg, cheese, ham and bacon. Green onions are good too. Then a quick trip into the oven creates this on the go meal. It will become your favorite leftover ham recipe too.

Watch as we make them right here. Using a measuring cup like this one makes them easy to fill with less spilling.

Easy breakfast bites.

Some of the kids prefer that there aren’t onions so half are made without those. If we have bacon instead of ham in the fridge then that is what is included. Both are really amazing though. 

Watch me as I make a batch of egg muffins here, using our prepared egg mixture. I used a few slices of ham that were leftover from Easter.
