17 Best Ham and Egg Recipes to Make for Breakfast

Ham and cheese is a classic American combination. Unfortunately, ham and egg recipes don’t get the same appreciation. 

That’s a shame because ham and egg recipes are awesome

They’re every bit as delicious as ham and cheese and so versatile!

You can make ham and egg breakfast sandwiches, omelets, burritos, and more!

You can put ham and eggs in practically anything, and it’ll taste incredible. 

So if you’re here looking for more boring ham and cheese recipes, you’re out of luck.

This list is all about ham and egg recipes instead. (Just kidding, ham and cheese! I love you, too!)

1. Baked Ham and Cheese Omelet

This hearty omelet is an excellent way to start your morning right. It’s cheesy, fluffy, and protein-heavy. 

You can jazz it up with veggies and herbs if you like.

However, you can just as easily whip it up with six simple ingredients. Either way, it’s sure to satisfy.

2. Cheesy Ham and Egg in a Hole Bake

This tasty morning meal combines eggs, ham, cheese, and scallions. It tastes similar to the omelet but is on toast instead. 

It’s crunchy, buttery, and not nearly as dry and dull as plain toast.

Spice up your morning routine with this 15-minute recipe that everyone will love.

3. Ham and Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are always a hit, and cheesy scrambled eggs are even better.

Cheesy scrambled eggs with diced ham and chives? Yeah. That’s pretty much a home run.

These fluffy eggs take just 10 minutes to make. They’re light, supremely cheesy, and have a zingy kick from the ranch.

Give them a try the next time ‘plain’ eggs aren’t enough.

4. Baked Ham and Egg Cups

These low-carb ham cups use five ingredients and take 40 minutes to make.

They’re salty and entirely filling. Plus, they combine green onions and cheese, a superb combination.

Best of all, they take practically no effort to make. Even the most beginner of chefs can pull these together with no problems.

5. Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche

This cheesy, eggy quiche is phenomenal. And using a frozen pie crust for the outside? Brilliant! It saves so much time and tastes so good. 

The decadent, double cheesy treat is ideal for a summer brunch. It’s relatively easy to make but looks and tastes very impressive. 

6. Ham and Egg Breakfast Bake

Want something as filling as a casserole but with more veggies? This ham and egg breakfast bake is just the thing. 

There’s ham, cheese, and eggs, of course.

However, there are also mushrooms, bell peppers, green onions, and anything else you want to add. It’s hardcore ‘stick to your ribs’ food.

7. Overnight Ham and Egg Breakfast Casserole

Do you often find yourself rushing around in the mornings? Is cooking breakfast not something you have time for? Then make it the night before! 

That’s what you’ll do with this casserole. Then, you’ll simply pop it in the oven and heat it the following day.

It’s a delicious sweet and savory way to make mornings easy.

You might think combining Dijon mustard with cinnamon and maple syrup is weird. Trust me, though. It tastes so much better than you realize.

8. Egg, Cheese, and Ham Wrap

Wraps aren’t usually my thing. If I want a sandwich, then I will have an actual sandwich.

This egg, cheese, and ham wrap is an exception, though. It’s divine.

It takes just 10 minutes to make and is soft, cheesy, and unbelievably good. I sometimes add a couple of extra crispy bacon slices, too.

It tastes fantastic with or without them, though.

9. Grilled Ham and Egg Sandwich

There’s just something so comforting about an egg sandwich.

My mom used to make them for me all the time. So now, when I eat them, it makes me think of home. 

But have you ever tried adding cheese and ham to one? It makes it even better.

The crunchy, buttery bread is perfect against the fluffy, cheesy filling. It’s an 11-minute masterpiece.

10. Breakfast Egg and Ham Burrito

This breakfast burrito definitely delivers on the flavor. It combines ham, onions, peppers, eggs, cheese, and more.

There’s even a dash of hot sauce for the perfect amount of kick.

It’s relatively healthy, too. Each one has just 200 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 13 net carbs.

Plus, you can make it in less than 20 minutes! It’s hard to argue with that. 

11. Ham, Egg, and Cheese Quesadilla

Quesadillas! They aren’t just for dinner anymore! With recipes like this one, you can enjoy them for breakfast, too. 

You may not find these on your favorite Mexican joint’s menu. Fortunately, whipping them up at home is super simple.

They take just 15 minutes to make and are full of flavor. They feature two types of gooey, melted cheese, chopped ham, and pillowy eggs.

12. Overnight Ham and Egg Breakfast Enchiladas

Here’s another excellent overnight recipe for those too busy to cook in the mornings.

Just do all the hands-on work the night before. The oven takes care of everything the day of. 

They may not be ‘traditional’ enchiladas. The whole family will appreciate them anyway.

13. Ham and Egg Salad

Want something light and tasty for a summer brunch? Ham and egg salad is the way to go.

This zingy, tangy recipe has everything you love about egg salad. Plus ham!

It’s a dense, chunky salad spread with a bit of spiciness from the brown mustard.

It takes just 15 minutes to make and requires no cooking. (Aside from boiling the eggs, of course.) 

Serve it alone, with green veggies, or on a sandwich. However you choose to enjoy it, you’re sure to love every bite.

14. Ham, Egg, and Cheese Casserole

Ham, egg, and cheese casserole takes just 5 minutes of prep work to whip up. Then, you’ll stick it in the oven and let it do all the hard work. 

It’s a great way to use up extra bread and ham. (Morning-after-Easter breakfast option, maybe?) If you need an easy way to feed a crowd, this recipe is it.

15. Ham and Cheese Frittata

Honestly, this recipe had me at Gruyere cheese and caramelized shallots.

Doesn’t that sound like heaven on a plate?! It does to me, anyway! 

If that’s not enough to sell you on this frittata, I’ve got more. Picture salty, smoky ham, earthy green onions, and the fluffiest of fluffy textures.

That’s this frittata in a nutshell. Try it just once, and you’ll be hooked for life.

16. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pizza

This easy-to-make, hearty breakfast pizza uses just six ingredients. And you can have it ready in 15 minutes or less. 

It’s a simple combo of ham, cheese, and eggs. However, you can always add onions, mushrooms, and peppers for a more veggie-packed meal.

17. Ham and Cheese Egg Muffins

Is there anything more heartwarming for breakfast than egg muffins?

There’s just something so cozy about them. I don’t even know what it is, but I adore them. 

This recipe takes the traditional egg muffin recipe up a notch. You’ll add ham steak, green onions, and cheddar. Plus a little salt, pepper, and garlic. 

These are eggy, earthy, and herby. Have them for breakfast or a mid-day snack.

They’re a great source of protein and are 100% keto-friendly. Enjoy!
