Little ham and egg tarts for Fathers day
My husband Michael proudly stands by the fact that these are still one of his favourites. They are one of the simplest pleasures. They are a treat for breakfast or brunch and they may just be the perfect thing for your Fathers day breakfast.
Happy Fathers day to all the wonderful Dad’s and Grandfathers out there). We hope your day is filled with lots of love, cuddles and deliciousness. xx
12 thin slices of great quality ham
12 free-range eggs
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
2–3 tablespoons cream
Freshly ground black pepper
A small handful of chopped parsley
Heat the oven to 180°C.
Grease each mould of a muffin tray then line the base and sides of each mould with a slice of ham.
Break an egg into each hollow and top with two halved cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with the cream, season with sea salt, pepper and scatter with freshly grated parmesan and parsley.
Bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes or until the egg is just set and starting to shrink away from sides of the pan.
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes.
Run a blunt edged knife or use a dessert spoon to go around each mould to loosen the ham and egg tarts.
Eat warm or at room temperature on their own or with your favourite relish (hopefully it is one of ours!)
