These Scrambled Egg Muffins with Ham are a simple, quick and delicious way to change up your breakfast routine. These are absolutely delicious and are super versatile. Your kids are going to love you.
I haven’t always been the greatest mom when it comes to breakfast for my boys. In fact, I’d probably get a “D” if there was such thing as a breakfast report card.
Most mornings have been cold cereal and toast, but honestly, they’ve been happy campers eating cold cereal for breakfast. I mean why wouldn’t they be when they pour themselves a big bowl of Frosted Flakes, Lucky Charms or Fruity Pebbles, etc. You would have had no complaints from me as a kid if that was my breakfast.
I have tried to make a hot breakfast for them once or twice a week, so at least I wouldn’t deserve an “F” and that report card (lol!).
The other morning I made these Scrambled Egg Muffins and they literally took me minutes to throw together and toss in the oven. In less than 20 minutes we had hot, delicious scrambled egg muffins sitting in front of us waiting to be devoured.The great thing about these is they’re so versatile. If you don’t like ham, you can add cooked sausage or bacon. You could throw in pepper jack cheese if you wanted to give them some kick. You could even throw in some spinach and feta cheese and leave out the meat. The options are endless my friends.
The thing I love about these is the slight buttery, sweet flavor the Ritz crackers adds to these. I thought it was a little odd when I saw that recipe included crushed Ritz, but they give these muffins the “fluff” they need without making them taste bready and heavy like flour would do.
Serve these with some fresh fruit and you seriously have one of the easiest, most delicious breakfasts (or dinners) ever.
Have a great Monday!Print
Scrambled Egg Muffins with Ham
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 7 1x
- 24 Ritz crackers, coarsely crushed
- 10 eggs
- 1/3 cup half & half
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) diced ham
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with baking spray.
- In medium bowl, whisk together crackers, eggs, half & half, salt and pepper until well mixed. Stir in grated cheese, diced ham and green onions.
- Pour mixture into greased muffin tin (about 3/4 full). Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until tops are lightly golden.
- These will “poof” up while baking, but will begin to fall as they sit for several minutes after being removed from the oven, so don’t be alarmed.

These will come out a littler easier if you use baking spray (cooking spray with flour in it) with rather than vegetable oil spray. No need to go buy baking spray if you don’t have any, just make sure you spray the tins really well. Before removing them from the muffin tin, run a knife around the edge to loosen the muffins.

Jodi these look fantastic. I have never heard of a breakfast muffin using crackers. I am definitely making these this week and will report back! My youngest graduates high school Wednesday so this will be fun to make when summer officially begins and we are not so rushed in the morning. Also what is baker’s spray? Is that the spray with flour in it? Thanks.
Hi Teresa, I always love hearing from you. These are so delicious and really you can do any combination of cheese or meat that you want. Baking spray is the spray with flour in it, thanks for asking. I’m going to make a note of that in my post. Have a great week!
Hi there. Pinned your coconut cake and can’t wait to try it but saw that you have 5 boys as well and I always feel a kinship with those fellow moms in the trenches….at least that the way it feels with me sometimes. I, too, love to bake and especially treats. It has been really fun to cook alongside my oldest who loves to bake as well. You have a wonderful looking family. Can’t wait to try your many great looking recipes.
Hi Amy! I love meeting moms who have 5 sons! I’m so glad you found my blog and I hope find lots of things to make that your boys will love. What are their ages? I have absolutely loved raising 5 boys! Life is never boring that’s for sure. You will absolutely LOVE the coconut cake, it’s definitely the most popular recipe on my site. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and I hope you’ll leave more and let me know what things you make. Thanks for the sweet compliment about my family. So nice to meet you!
