Gluten and Dairy Free Ham and Eggs Baskets

serves / makes 2 egg baskets
15 prep time
15 mins cooking time


I’m on a high protein diet due to pancreatic problems so this dish is right up my street. The possibilities are endless as you can add anything you like to the egg mix before you bake it in the little serrano ham basket. It can act as a gluten and dairy free alternative to quiche if you don’t have the time to stand and make GF/DF pastry.




  • 2 serrano ham slices
  • 2 eggs
  • Any herbs of your choice
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 oC
  2. Grease a muffin tin with olive oil
  3. Carefully line 2 muffin cases with serrano ham
  4. For the plain egg, separate the egg white and yolk
  5. Pour the egg white into the ham basket and carefully drop in the yolk
  6. To make the herby egg basket, beat one egg, season and flavour with your choice of herbs
  7. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes or until the eggs are firm
